Sending wishes that it is just fluid and easily removed!

I also call my girls my kids, and have seen some strange faces when I tell people the names of my girls Also when I was pregnant and was asked if this was my first child, I would say no, I have 2 girls, 3 and 6 years........they are very hairy


If it is fluid (which I hope it is) it is not removable by an op, it is to big now, but could be emptied, but the vet said they would fill back, untill the hormones would change, but if the would spay her, that could change the hormones some, and then they could operate on the cysts when Pollýanna is ready after the last op...

At least now I have hope to have her in my life longer

Oh, and another thing about my girls....one year I had a picture of Pollýanna on my Christmas cards (that was before Feykirófa was born), and people would even tell me they thought that very strange, but my reply to them was that I had a card from them with a pic of their child, why wouldn´t I send a pic of mine???
That year I got a lot of strange looks I knew that before I sent it, I guess in a way I was deliberately "shocking" all the "just a pet" people I know But in reality I was so very proud of my little girl and wanted to send her pic with all my Christmas cards.

Sess I just wanted to say that I've been thinking about you and especially Pollyanna since you started the thread. I'll keep checking for updates after her Monday operation. I hope it goes well. Of course here we all know what you're going through and can sympathize with the "just a pet" reactions of others - I hate that!

Well, here comes the update...

Pollýanna had the operation yesterday, her ovaries and uterus were removed. The vet said the uterus was really nasty looking, far too big, and the walls were far to thick and it was just not looking good. The vet that examined her last thursday, did the op, and she was so surprized that the cysts were even bigger yesterday than last thursday, and they are even bigger today. Now she can only hope they will start to get smaller, since they dont know what to do for her next.

My poor little thing, she was so ill last night, and still is, even though she has eaten now and can walk without falling on her side. She is just so skinny and the cysts are sticking out, and the huge bold part of her front with all the stitches (a bigger cut than with normal spaying, because the uterus was also removed).

I guess all I can do is wait and hope she will get better and the cysts will go away. She just is so weak and fragile, I am so worried for her...

Since the stitches have now been taken, and we have had another checkup, so I thought I tell more...

After the op. Pollýanna just slept for 5 days, but woke up to eat and drik a little bit and go to the litterbox 2 times a day. As time went by, she seemed to get weaker instead of better, and on the 5th day, she didn´t move all night and all day untill 6 PM, and then I called the emergency vet number. The vet was also worried, and told me to try to apply heat on her cysts (since they were still growing, and I felt the biggest one was ready to explode), and give them very delicate massage in hope something would come from her nipples and take some of the pressure out.
After this day, she started to get better, and had been getting better, getting a long treat of heat on cysts. The formarly biggest cysts seem so have less pressure, but the 3 newest are now like exploding.

At the checkup last the vet brought back the possibillity of cancer, I think I will make a thread about that in the Health and nutrition forum. Unfortunately there is nothing done here with cancer in cats except an op. to remove the tumor, no other treatment... if you have any advise, please check out the thread in H&N and give me some!

I really hope and prey for my little girl to get better and I want to thank you again for all your support, you are so great!

The vet wants an update on her cysts in about a week, and then maybe take a sample from the cysts and send them to be analized, and also maybe try to empty them to take the pressure off.

Heidi, this is such a sweet message form Trent, Pollýanna is very thankful, she was trying to explain to me what this meant, and apparently, this is some cat lingo!

I often get help like that with my typing

....I was just reading my post, and just wanted to add that nothing comes from her nipples, and the vet now thinks this is not linked to the nipples, so if she empties the cysts that would mean some anaesthesia, and empy by a needle of some sort...

I am still sending some good vibes for sweet pollyanna. I'm so sorry you both have to go through this.
