I spoke to the vet who did her op, and he said that it could be that she is getting more confident at putting weight on it, and it is too soon, but he can't really say if it is a good thing or not. She is more reluctant to walk than she was at the beginning of the week though. Her antibiotics (that I don't know why she is on) finish tomorrow, and he said to have her on Metacam for a week, that ends on Sun. So still waiting, either until Tues, or earlier if she is walking on it. he did say he would hope that the swelling would go down by the end of hte week, and if the swelling is causing hte nerve damage, it is fully reversible. I did pass comment on the fact that my cat could walk before he operated, and he was very apologetic, and wants me to ring the week after next when he is back in work (they do a week on, a week off). Her eating is still dodgy, she can eat dry food, but seems to struggle with wet. While she is eating enough, I don't want to drag her back to the vets though, she has been 4 times since SAt morning and might already have to have tests next week - and I need to cancel her app to see the other vet about her nose on Sat - although my vet agreed that her nose is looking worse. Just one thing after another with her.
