2 weeks post osteosarcoma amputation!  

i can’t thank everyone on this site enough!  Reading these comments about how great an amputation surgery could go, gave me the strength to make this hard decision for my 10 yr old golden “Sunny”.  

1 year ago he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on his front limb.  I started EVERY homeopathic remedy I could find including but not limited to: Cbd, turkey tail mushrooms, mushroom immunity blend,  “green egg” membranes, Reckeweg, Broccoli, magnesium, selenium, and more!

After 11 months and ONLY taking CBD and CBG for pain, an xray showed the tumor had eaten both bones in the front leg.  Somehow Sunny was still happy and hopping enthusiastically!  The tumor had a growth spurt and started getting heavy and more painful.  Xray showed his lungs were clear after 1 year. EVERYONE including the dr’s thought he was too old for amputation.  As a jogger his whole life with no signs of arthritis, I knew he could do it!  

The surgical pain med NOCITA had Sunny hopping hella fast over to me after 1 overnight post op!  Ask for it!! He was only on Codeine and Carprofen for 2 weeks and now takes only CBD and CBG.  We had ZERO complications post op other than boredom.  

A tight dog shirt kept the fluids from pooling, nothing ever leaked out of the incision.  He practiced hopping for almost a year so he seemed relief from the tumor pain and weight!  The lymph node at that leg was LARGE, so it was removed but showed no cancer in it.  Lungs are still clear!

Dr says what they always say “Probably/likely/could/maybe microscopic cancer cells are already everywhere”.  THEY CAN’t FIND ANYTHING! Lol.

We will continue our immune boosting natural remedies but in the meantime Sunny is awaiting a cart from Eddieswheels.com 🙂  We will enjoy life to the fullest until its time to return to source.  That’s all you need to do!  

Love, Kristen and Sunshine
