Thank you so much for the response!

No, x-rays were not revealing. I have pictures of my x-rays, but I doubt they are sufficiently detailed enough to be useful here.

Aspiration wasn't done, nor was any bloodwork, which I was a bit confused by.

She seemed relatively convinced that it was a skeletal issue, as there were no growths or much of anything going on in the swollen area; I personally have been doubting it.

She appears to have a subscription to vin, as she told me she'd be calling me back once she consulted with some reptile-savvy vets online.

At this point, I'm betting/hoping it was light damage in some of the ligature, as was suggested over on the boa forum. His jaw is staying much more stable at this point, though I'm still administering the meds when it seems needed.

We'll see what my vet comes back and says. Again, I appreciate the response!
