Kathy Griffin feared her dog Maggie’s tooth would need to be pulled on Tuesday after revealing she had been trying to get the pooch to “stop eating rocks”.
The comedian, who on Monday asked social media users to help decipher her lung cancer scan results after her surgeon “ghosted” her, announced on Twitter that her beloved pet was taking a trip to the vet .
Post a photo of Maggie relaxing by a swimming pool Suddenly Susan Star Griffin, 61, wrote: “Lil Maggie the dawg is having a tooth pulled today. We tried to get them to stop eating rocks.”
However, the medical journey turned out to be a lot less serious than first feared, Griffin’s husband, Randy Bick, revealed in a follow-up tweet.
Bick posted another photo of Maggie and said, “Maggie’s home! A little sleepy, but overall in excellent health. The doctor only had to remove/repair a small broken plate, but the tooth is saved (and the root is very healthy!). Pack is back!”
“Don’t worry, she’s going to be extra super spoiled with treats and cuddles,” Griffin commented in response to the tweet.
Griffin often shares details of her personal life with her dogs. In May, she received a barrage of advice from her Twitter followers after one of her dogs started chewing his own testicles.
Griffin posted video footage of the dog in question, as the comedian said on camera: “He’s been doing this since we got him. I took him to the vet and said, ‘Why is Elliot chewing his own shit?’ And they said, ‘Oh, they play a lot of dogs.’ I said, ‘No, no, he’s chewing. It changes colors!’”
“My dog Elliot has a very bizarre habit,” Griffin wrote in an accompanying caption. “He’s chewing on his penis. He chews on it like it’s a treat. Yes I spoke to the vet and they said there is nothing they can do unless I want to ‘put his vagina on’. No, I will not have a vet operate on his SHEATH.”
On Monday, Griffin asked her social media followers for help understanding her recent lung cancer scan results.
The TV personality revealed she was diagnosed with the disease back in August 2021 before revealing she was cancer-free in November.
However, she has since expressed fears her voice will never return to normal after it was altered to a higher pitch than usual as a result of her treatment.
“I just had my year-old lung cancer CT scan. Should get results within a few days,” she wrote on Aug. 18, commenting the next day, “I haven’t had an oncologist yet so I tracked down one who specializes in breast cancer, not lung, but she could do the scan.” arrange my lungs. Anyway, now they said the results will be in 72 hours. Monday.
As Monday rolled around, Griffin seemed none the wiser about her health as she posted the results online in hopes someone with expertise in the field could share some knowledge.
“Guys I don’t actually have an oncologist and the surgeon who removed half my lung scared me but I think my #lungcancerscan is clean,” she tweeted. “Since I can’t get anyone on the phone to interpret this among my thousands of doctors, I’m asking #CancerTwitter! Hey #oncology…”
When one of Griffin’s followers asked if she had tried a certain doctor in the Los Angeles area, the TV personality replied, “He was the surgeon that removed half my left lung.
“But I lost faith in him when, on the day he had surgery in the morning, he himself underwent anesthesia a few hours later in the same hospital and had surgery on his own knee. So he didn’t eat or drink before he cut me.”
Declaring that their situation “sucks,” Griffin went on to say of the surgeon, “He permanently ruined my vocal cords and my arytenoids! My voice is my livelihood.
“It discourages me that people attack a surgeon who caused me so much trouble. I had stage 1. I really wish I had had chemo/radiation instead of surgery with this hack.”
Griffin may have received a response to her initial query when a Twitter user told her “the report looks great.
“Thanks, Doctor! I do not know anyone. I don’t even have a pulmonologist,” Griffin wrote back. “The guy I had is about 85 years old. No more men either. No joke. I would prefer a woman under 50. I would love to have recommendations for Cedars, St. Johns or UCLA! Worry & it makes me extremely anxious & anxious.”
