Posted: 27/07/2015 by jane Thompson

Hi my 75 year old t.graeca has a swelling on his leg whi has grown to the size of a small marble. The skin has gone a yellow colour. He is not bothered ansd is eating and charging about.

Took him to my usual vet who is not a reptile expert and suggested an xray and a 200 operation. Any suggestions first please.
Thanks

Hello Jane,


Did the vet state the cause of the swelling & the object of the proposed surgery ?

Regards,
Tom
