yes Elena, you may use Brodies current story and pictures. I know I had sent his sinus infection story to you to use also.

From what I can see, there's seems to be a moderate amount of STS (soft tissue swelling) within the nasal cavity protruding up along the posterior wall. I do not see any indication of a fracture. Although, based on some of your descriptions of excessive head shaking and banging into things, most of this swelling can be tissue/bone bruising which also can give a mass like appearance.

From the photos, the swelling and drainage does appear to be relative to a dense mass indicating a possible infection in correlation to the radio-graphs. It's more prominent on the right side with minimal collection of fluid on the left.

I'm so sorry that your precious little baby is still having issues Chris. My prayers are constantly there for you and Brodie. hug2

Linda, I pray that the "mass like appearance" is bone/tissue bruising from Brodie's overagressive shaking of his head to get the medicine taste out of his mouth rather than some kind of nasal tumor.

Baby Bear (Brodie's nickname) is doing well. His sniffles have all but stopped and he is alert, eating well, bright eyed, bushy tailed and thoroughly enjoying his magnet therapy.

Chris called me earlier today (and said I could post but I forgot to).

Brodie does NOT have a tumor. It is either an abcess or cyst and it ruptured today! This sounds bad but is actually good. Now it is open and can drain. He is on antibiotics and is having ointment put on the wound. Now it is a matter of kicking the infection and it healing.

Linda, she did say she feels the magnets played a big role in helping it to surface and pop and said THANK YOU.

Yes Brodies nose "popped" LOL. After his magnet therapy, I noticed that he had opened the spot on his nose where his abscess had drained previously. I went to put antibiotic ointment on it and it spit out some condensed puss....kind of like a pimple popping. I was able to get 2 decent sized amounts out and a few smaller amounts.

I was hoping to get more out tonight after his magnet therapy, but it didn't cooperate.

Chris, you know after Riker and his facial issues I was skeptical of a mass/tumor...his (Riker's) infection literally made his head bones look deformed on Xray until we finally got the right meds combo for him (6 months in)...once the infection began to clear, it didn't diffuse and scatter the Xrays and so they looked normal again. Of course, I'm biased with your guys and don't want to believe the worst anyhow, lol. I think once the infection drains and clears you'll get a much more normal looking Xray...dense infection can do funny things on films.

If you don't mind...I'm going to post Riker's Xrays from that time here...to show how dramatic a difference an infection can make and reinforce little Brodie's good chances smile You already know I'm really happy for you guys! thumb

Note that this was way before his thyroid meds, and yes, he was a chunk, lol. ohwell

I appreciate all the support from everyone through the ups and downs and back ups now. Brodie is continuing to do well and I've gotten pus out several times. Most of it is kinda stiff, more like what would come out of a cyst rather than gooey draining pus (yes I know....ewwwww). Unfortunately since baby bear has been on antibiotics for nearly 2 weeks it wouldn't do any good to collect a sample to be tested.
I talked with my vet yesterday and he did the happy dance when I told him Brodie had pus coming out of his nose LOL Brodie is a favorite of everyone at the vet's office and no one wanted to think that he had a mass growing in his face. Anyway, Dr Kaiser immediately got the 3rd antibiotic (the one we didn't think we needed) ready for me to pick up and Brodie started on it yesterday.
I am also continuing Brodie's magnet therapy. It has gotten easier to go in 2 directions at once....tho I never thought I'd get the hang of it when Linda first told me to do it that way. Brodie LOVES his therapy. He was all bouncy last night when I got him out. I laid him on my stomach and covered him with my shirt to keep him in place. Well after about 3 rotations I didn't have to worry about him wanting to move. He was totally zoned out and enjoying himself. Even having magnets whiz by his half opened eyes or brushing his ears doesn't faze him.
