About 4 weeks ago, Kunga underwent a laparoscopic gastropexy, surgery intended to prevent the torsion (twisting) of the stomach that goes with bloat. He had a single incision, about 1.5 inches long. I posted a photo of that incision right after the surgery. Here it is three weeks later (taken last week):
About 10 days after the surgery, the area around the incision developed a small pouch of fluid. I’d been told to expect this or it would have freaked me out! The pouch was soft and about the size of half an apricot. Slowly, over the course of about another week, it disappeared as his body absorbed this extra fluid around the operation site. Now it is almost gone. From the grand height of about 4.5 feet (the distance from my eyes to the ground), the whole area is hardly noticeable except as a small white scar. In fact when Kunga is standing, you can’t see any of this at all.
