Booked in for tomorrow morning to see another vet.

Spoke to my vet again on Saturday, and he suggested just waiting and monitoring her, as the egg is not causing her a problem, and to re x ray if she starts having problems, but he said he's not confident to operate onher. However, after all my research now and before, l'm convinced the egg needs to come out, especially as she's started roaming and digging in her cage last 3 days, and hasn't pooped after the last meal. The egg is not moving down.

I was hoping to see a reptile specialist in Bristol, but can't drive that far with my neck, and hubby can't take the time off - so an exotics vet in Exeter has agreed to see Baz tomorrow...poor Baz, 4 weeks now she's had the egg stuck...Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

I know, but the lady vet only works Thursdays and Fridays at that particular surgery ( and that's where they have the facilities for snakes etc ). Also, l fed Baz this Monday, so by then she will be empty.

She did say that it's possible the egg would eventually calcify and just stay inside her, but it would have to be monitored as it could start causing problems anytime. She could get infections, or impactions, and than we would be operating on a sick snake, as opposed to a healthy one... there is minimal chance that she would pass it naturally as it hasn't moved at all. In fact, l'm worried it had burst, because it had been clearly visible from the outside, and now it isn't, though you can still feel it.

She also recommended bathing Baz to keep her hydrated. I had bathed her on Monday before feed, because she didn't poop at all from the previous meal but she didn't poop even in the bath ( that was another reason why I wanted Baz to see a vet ). I wasn't going to bath her yesterday as l thought she'd had enough with the travel ( and near miss accident, and only day 3 after feed ). But Baz wasn't keen to get back in her viv, so l though ok, a quick bath just to see - and she actually enjoyed it and did a poop - but really strange one, so l wonder if it was the contents of the egg. She will have an x ray before the op, so if anything has changed they will see it. I did take a photo of the poop for the vet.

Aaaarghh...still didn't go in... Bazilishka started going blue on Monday...talk about timing, you couldn't make it up! Rung the surgery, and it was decided to postpone the op till after the shed, as it's not ideal to operate on a blue snake.

I'm hoping she'll shed quickly and can go in next Thursday, but she is still not fully blue yet, so it will probably be the week after...now l'm wondering what if she decides to double clutch - will the new eggs be developing by then? She will have an x ray before the op, anyway, so they would be able to tell. I'm loosing the will to live... Baz seems ok in herself, l fed her on Monday once l knew she wasn't going for the op this week, and she ate, even though she was going blue, so hopefully at least that is a good sign.

Never heard of them not opping when blue.
She really needed that egg out like 4 weeks ago. Really hope she's going to be ok, but it has been a damn long time

At least a little bit of luck- Baz shed last night, and the lady vet managed to get her booked in for this Friday - so, hopefully, that will be sorted now...unless Baz decides to double clutch

I'm really crossing everything that the op will go well...Baz is looking good, put on some weight, ate well even in blue, and the last poop was exemplary... but l can't feel the egg anymore. They will x ray or scan her before the op, anyway, to see where the egg is and what is going on...

Scaly, l know, if it had been up to me, she would have had the op 4 weeks ago...

Her eggs in the incubator are looking well, and we are on day 39 ...
