I adopted a rescue in September 2017, she had had her front leg amputated the month before, due to nerve paralysis (animal control suspected that she had been hit by a car).

This morning I noticed that her stump has some swelling; when I examined it, it felt squishy, as if it is filled with fluid.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? 

I do have an appointment with my vet later this evening, but I am curious to see if others can offer any input in the meantime.

Thank you!

Here and Now

What you describe sounds like a seroma , a perfectly common amputation surgery side effect. We are not vets, but it does seem rare for a seroma to occur so long after the operation. Click any seroma link for more information.
