Surgery Photos

As promised here are some of the photos from Icy's surgery!  The mass is the big red ball on the right. 



It was approximately 10 cm in diameter when they got it out.  Amazing that she showed no signs for so long!  The final pathology report came back today-diagnosis was a liver hematoma (in a fibrous capsule) which, although not terribly interesting, is completely benign.  She continues to improve daily at home.

That just looks so huge and angry, thank heavens it was not a more worrisome thing, glad Icy is doing well, she seriously is a lucky kitty!

OMG, what a big thing it was.
So glad she is doing ok, and that it is benign.

I am so glad you guys got that thing out and Icy is going to be ok! Pictures were interesting but gross, I have to say!

That's a big growth for a little cat. What would cause something like that? Monty had hematomas on his ears from trauma.
