Sorry to hear that
I hope they will be able to manage it without another surgery.
We don't really have an official diagnosis yet, but the symptoms match and they checked her larynx when she was under and it looks like it doesn't work properly. But we will still have to do additional tests to confirm GOLLP. This disease is quite rare here I guess, because I haven't found many people who have any experience with it and the only one who is dealing with something similar with her newfoundland right now was sent to Vienna, Austria because our vets were unable to do every test that's necessary.
Right now we'll just manage it untill I find the right vet and recover for a bit financially after her recent vet bills. Brina is doing quite well if I keep her calm, she went on a 2 hour walk yesterday without any problems. She gets a bit winded when going up stairs, but nothing serious. The only time I really have to watch her and keep her calm is when I have visitors, because she's just so damn happy, she starts to have problems breathing, but so far she calmed down quickly every time so it's not a problem. It's good that she's a very laid back dog in general, it's not hard keeping her calm and minimising her breathing problems. She has no issues the majority of time (for now at least)
