Boxer Insane
I posted earlier that Tyson had been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer following removal of his thyroid. I did see an oncologist that confirmed that he still had cancer in his system, as well as a tumor in his left lung. After hearing the treatment options and the expected prognosis of 3 - 6 month life extension, I decided not to pursue treatment. Well, now 8 months have passed and Tyson is still with us. He has gained 12 pounds (omg) since being diagnosed. I guess since he has no thyroid. So, otherwise, he is still happy, playing, eating, and going for walks - just gets tired faster. He is also just as obnoxious as ever when the door bell rings!! I just wanted to post an update and see if anyone else has had any recent experience with NOT treating for cancer. I took him to the vet the other day for his regular check-up and the vet was amazed.
