Pancake is 4 yr F Pitbull, 64.4#, 2 days post OHE.
rDVM requested ultrasound as the sponge count was one gauze short.
clinically patient is normal, normothermic, non-painful abdomen.
I have not looked at a post op OHE so I am wondering if the appearance is normal or could be reactive to a gauze left behind. The inflammation seems to be at the uterine stump. I guess i was expecting a gauze sponge to have a hyperechoic strong shadowing appearance as might be seen if it was a cloth intestinal foreign body.
Currently the rDVM is just monitoring the patient closely since there are no real clinical signs to suggest that immediate surgical intervention. Considering a follow-up ultrasound in about one week.
