Robin the Four Eyed Possum recovers from surgery

 Robin the Four Eyed Possum recovers from surgery

Robin went in for surgery this morning. It went well and she was awake and calm when I picked her up. I took a few photos of her but decided to not disturb her to get stitch photos. I can get those later.

Dr said that she ended up with an L shaped stitching after removing the fatty deposits and extra tissue, so that will be interesting to see. I am going to leave her alone for a few days to heal.

She received pain injection and should be good to go in a few days. I do not have an e-collar on her.

I took a few photos of her as she got her first doses of water. She literally drank for over ten minutes. You can see that she still has loose skin around the neck. The vet said that it was too difficult and risky to go up there, but the main area has been cleared and will no longer interfere with her walking, climbing and getting into her pouch.






Her tail is very much larger than the boys which tells me that we still have a lot of fat to burn on her. I will keep this in mind in future feedings and she will also burn some weight faster as I plan on exercising her in a room, tent, ball, larger cage with climbing branches and an exercise wheel if I can manage to make one around 18".

Robin is beautiful and I'm sure this surgery will make life a lot easier for her. She has a very special home!

Yay Robin, she's going to get addicted to correctional surgeries and want a nose job soon enough.
