Question Hi Donna , big improvement this morning , swelling is down to half of what it was . The teat is getting softer working from the ouside going in , and again about half of what it was . I know now that shes definitly got a chance of a full recovery accept the use of the udder , but thats ok . Thanks again for your help , and i think the vet is wrong about that much scar tissue , i don't think scar tissue could srink . Ill keep you imformed
Answer Thanks for the update - glad things are getting better - lots of hard work on your part. Re the scar tissue - sometimes it is scar tissue and that tissue gets inflamed so becomes hard - but with that new infusion that may be decreasing the inflammation inside and so the shrinking udder side. All sounds good for a full recovery currently. Donna
