Hernia surgery kitten

Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery kitten


Avatar n tn Tucker is a Siamese mix who had an umbilical hernia, which was corrected with surgery. Since then, Tucker (now 6 months old) has grown steadily, is very active and playful, eats fitfully, and is very affectionate. His coat is full and shiny, and his mucous membranes (gums, eyes) appear normal and pink. My concerns: ~When Tucker was recovering from his surgery, he picked up some fleas, which I haven't been able to get rid of. My other two are showing no symptoms of flea infestation.
784382 tn?1376934640 so on tuesday i will be going in for gallbladder surgery. i wasnt really nervous when i found out because im ready to feel better. but all the stories online about this surgery are HORROR stories. FREAKS ME OUT! making me so depressed.....im so young why is all this crap happening to me??....hopefully this gallbladder is connected to the dizziness i been feeling, that would be nice i been praying, but think i could use just a few more if at all possible. im sure i will be a wreck tomorrow.....
Avatar n tn I've had a bump that comes and goes in my groin area, to the right of my pubic bone for over a year now. I've had one doctor tell me it's a hernia, one doctor tell me it's a swollen lymphnode and one not know what it is at all and want to do exploratory surgery. It seems to be oblong in shape and it almost feels rubbery. I've been tracking it for about a year now and it seems to show up every month during ovulation and stay for anywhere from 6 to 10 days.
Avatar m tn Hi, i have gone to the vet and found out that it was a hernia ! Last week he had surgery to remove it. Sadly after the operation at the vet when the anesthetic had worn off he tried to squeeze out the cage and that caused internal bleeding.He sadly passed away . Thanks for your help anyways !
Avatar m tn Hello App, You have every right to be concerned--why a vet would give a rabies shot to a kitten going under surgery is BEYOND belief. Please get her to an emergency vet NOW. A rabies shot on a Kitten is tough enough, but when their system is already compromised by surgery---who knows what will happen. Now!!! to the emergency animal hospital--please!!!!!
Avatar f tn If you are having symptoms that are not relieved by medication or if the most recent echo shows right ventricular dysfunction then surgery is probably indicated. The surgery is relatively simple and the valve can usually be repaired (rather than replaced). If you want a second opinion here I would recommend Dr. L. Rodriquez at desk F15. Good luck.
Avatar n tn hello there, my name is kitt i am new to all this. i do have nodules also. i have not been able to swollen very well also, and i feel like i have something stuck in my troat too. sometimes i feel i can not breath. i throught i share that with you. i am seeking another opinion. hope u fell better.
Avatar n tn If he had been hospitalized for a intestinal blockage due to an abdominal hernia why haven't they operated on the hernia. I suspect is platelets are too low and that would make the surgery dangerous, and the likelihood of the hernia returning due to the ascites is high? Maybe I am assuming too much and the intestinal block is caused by something else. Other symptoms I had were cramps (sometimes in my whole body), itching, exhaustion and confusion from the ammonia in my system.
Avatar f tn It is surprisingly easy to miss a hernia that has been present for a long time. I have noted hernias in the record and then had owners come in later with the cat, having just noticed the lump again and not remembering talking about it in a previous office visit. The last cause I can think of for lumps in this region is cancer, even in young cats. Sometimes young cats develop fibrosarcomas and they can occur in this region.
Avatar n tn We recently found out that she has a diaphragmatic hernia and were advised to put her down, but we want to know if there are other options first. Here is some more information. She is about 9 years old as of this summer. She is an inside cat. About a year after we got her, when she was just a kitten, she got really sick and almost died. We were told to put her down back then and here she is 8 years later and has lived a fairly healthy and very happy life.
Avatar m tn I got her sick - eye infection, upper respiratory, then she was spayed and got a hernia and had surgery, then found blood in her urine from the litter box and took her to vet - she had crystals in her urine so he put her on prednisone for like months and dasaquin which he told me coats the bladder....said to keep her off dry food altogether that some cats can't handle it and have these issues...so I did.
Avatar f tn I am an animal lover and had a wonderful sweet daschund who was sweet faithful and loyal. When I had hernia repair surgery, he never left my side except to go out and do his business. Unfortunately, while I was washing my shitzu, the dashund got outside and was hit by a car. (Son accidentally let him out while he was bringing the shitzu in.) I was traumatized. I cried my eyes out and within 4 days I had a new daschund puppy.That dog was the laziest, slowest learner I have ever encountered.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if anyone out there has had a thoracotomy and could let me know if it is atypical to have pain 6 weeks after surgery. I have read about post thoracotomy pain syndrome and I'm concerned that this is what I'm experiencing. I sure hope it will get better because I can't imagine having to live with this pain for the rest of my life! Any advice/information would be appreciated. I'm especially interested in advice about long term pain management after a thoracotomy. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I went to my GYN and she put me on the pill (mostly to help with the awful bloating) and will see me again in May. She wants to avoid surgery if possible. I read that sometimes surgery does not help. What do you know about this? I guess this is my "bad" doctor story as well because WHY didn't my Gastro doc even consider endo especially after I charted my symptoms and the bleeding almost always happens a day or two before or during my period? He has never had a patient with endo.
4939681 tn?1361302899 She said the occipital was a cyst formed after a flare up. Also, she said the abdominal bump that moves is most likely a hernia, since it pops out when I relax my muscles, but she didn't say anything more about it. Today, I had the same imaging doctor as before with the left axiallary. The right is large, not as big as the left and in her opinion a "reactive" node. She reexamined the left and was surprised to see it still large and in charge.
Avatar n tn I took her to the vet and of course they said surgery. They did not even know what it was at the time. Of course, I was afraid of doing surgery because she is so old and I did not want her to suffer. She acts perfectly normal. She runs, rolls, jumps, eats, drinks,. I mean if it wasnt for this massive lump on her back you wouldnt know she was sick. Anyway, I noticed last week that the lump was opening up. Im not sure if she scratched it or if it is busting open, but it worried me.
514916 tn?1224521687 #1 Vet said, could be shot reaction, or stress from coming to vet, or she has a hernia and vet said she pushed on it quite hard so could be pain Next day chi is not in good shape, called #1 Vet to schedule her for hernia surgery thinking shes in pain and requested pain med for her, #1 Vet said, shes busy for next 2 days, take her to another vet or hosp which opens in 4 hours. that pissed me off!!!
413852 tn?1317312312 five or ten minutes I think...I went home and relaxed. My aunt is doing great. The surgery went well. She is at home resting. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. AFM. I am okay. Still sick as ever. Had one drop of brownish blood on my liner, but hopefully that's normal. Well I am pooped. I will talk to you all later!!
Avatar n tn I have been for 5 years now since my last surgery - pretty much pain free but diarreah (which is manageable) and no meds for 4-1/2 yrs.
Avatar f tn They found this strange young doctor who placed me in hospital and set up a team with disease and control people, neurologists and he was a urologist that does mini surgery(?) After ten days in ICU including ice beds and and all sorts of stuff, my fever started to break. They had operated on my kidney and placed drains in them. As soon as i asked for a glass of chicken broth he said he knew I was saved and would live for no one who is dying asks for food.
Avatar n tn I know exactly what you mean. I started taking vicodin for a back surgery, and didn't realize i was getting addicted. I also liked the feeling i got from them and now i'm scared just thinking of trying to get off of them.It's such a panicky feeling when i'm getting low on them and have to worry if the next rx is going to go through.I'm close to your age. I have tried cutting down and that never seems to work out. How did you get the clonidin? I heard that will help with the withdrawels.
Avatar f tn After running more tests, they discovered a mass in my small intestine. I had surgery to remove it and they said that was why I was having the stomach pains. However, I got tested again for the H.Pylor through a blood test and it showed positive again. This time they didn't give me anything. They told me that once you tested positive for H.Pylor, you always will test positive. I asked how I'd be able to tell then if the bacteria came back?
Avatar n tn Whow, all these stories make me think I am on the lower spectrum of "issues" having taken 2 Neurofen Plus a day since about 7-8 months post a back surgery. However realising that this is not normal I have stopped taking them on a daily basis and honestly since 4 days feel like ****. Am depressed and dizzy a lot of times and wonder if these are withdrawl symptoms or if it is all just in my head? Can you get addicted on 2 a day or again is the additiction all in your head?
