Oh, no. I wasn't aware it would cause him pain. Right now his discomfort
seems to be focused on his rear end, which is of course much more acute,
and he doesn't flinch when I touch the chordoma. However I will expedite
the process of having it removed.

I'm assuming, though, that he shouldn't go under sevofluorane until his
infection is resolved? How long after his rear looks normal again should I
wait, in your opinion?
