hello, im new to this site i just had to take my cat to the vet this week. they had to do surgery to remove stones from his gall bladder. he came home a day later then the next day i had to take him back because he couldnt use the bathroom. and wasnt eating or drinking they did an x-ray and found another stone in the urethea. so today they pushed the stone back in and went back in to remove it then i get a call this afternoon that his kidneys are acting up and hes very largic it could be from strees they said or kidney failure or dietbiteis. theyre giveing him fluids to try and wash his system out im dieing here this is like my son is this normal after a operation ? is he going to pull thru?

I have no words of wisdom for you, but wanted to welcome you to TCS. Also praying your baby recovers fully.

Sounds like your poor boy is having a really tough time of it! Both of my boys have developed crystals in their bladders. Frantic had magnesium crystals so they both went on maintenance food. Then Pipsqueek developed crystals in reaction to the food (acidic crystals) that were so big, you could see them with the naked eye.

This is a harsh diagnosis, but it is curable. It will be a few days before his bladder and urethra relax enough to pee. When that happens, you'll jump for joy! Expect a lifetime change in his diet. No more dry food for him.

Sending healing vibes and coping vibes TCS vibes are very strong.
