Can I expect my cat (14 years old) to recover from radical surgery to remove a fibro-sarcoma tumor on her left side, so that she can live a COMFORTABLE life for the time she remains alive?
If we avoid surgery on the fibro-sarcoma, what is the reasonable prospect for relatively pain-free life?
In other words, the issue for me as a Daddy, is: Which option - surgery or no surgery - can offer my kitty the best hope for the longest span of comfortable living - not just surviving but enjoying her life?
