Contemplating Exploratory Surgery- Advice is Needed! - Page 2

post #31 of 37
Thread Starter 
So I finally got to visit my baby at the vet. He was so disorientated! Catatonic and not very energetic. He just lay on the table, put his head on my hand and tried to lean against me. But I'm not sure if that is because he recognized me or because I was there trying to hold him. The vet has him hooked up to an IV with liquids and has been force feeding him. He told me that my cat has not been eating of his own volition, but that was to be expected. Nabia was not showing much interest in food before this procedure so he probably would show less now, seeing as how he is probably in a lot of pain.

I'm not feeling very good about this situation right now. The vet indicated that perhaps he might have to stay until at least Monday. I guess this is better than the last time he was put under sedatives and brought home all wonky within a couple of hours. I was so worried about him the last time he was on sedatives that I called the emergency line. I guess this vet is trying to err on the side of caution. But I still don't know what to feel exactly.

I hope that I made the right decision. Please keep us in your prayers.

Thank you so much for all your good !! I truly appreciate them! Nabia finally came home yesterday August 10th. He seems so alert and is definitely not as bad as I had expected him to be. In the car on the way home he was popping his head out of his carrier, sniffing the air and even tried to crawl out a couple of times. At home he is affectionate and slept next to me in my bed for at least a couple of hours.

Last night he hid/slept under the dining room table and was there this morning before I left for work. He is not showing much interest in eating whatsoever. This is making me very worried. The vet said that he ate of his own will at the hospital with no vomit but at home he is showing no interest. I even tried following him around with a small spoon in his face last night. He licked some of the food but ate only about 2 tablespoons of AD? He seems hungry, goes to where is food bowl area is, but will not eat the ZD or the AD. All he does is drink water. Last night he went to his food bowl area at least a half dozen times. I need to find food that he will eat and keep down. Any suggestions?

The pathology report has not come back yet. The vet took a full thickness sample from the bowel and a sample from the mesentery. Apparently there was some growth in the mesentery as well. The vet said that this growth could be due to irritation and not necessarily because it is lymphoma. So now I wait, again. But in the mean time I need to make sure that my cat eats so as not to get FLD.
