    Default Lilly had her surgery today and.....

    Lilly went in for her spay surgery today. we were really worried about her due to only having one possible heat that we know of and she should still be in it. Well..... the surgery went well BUT the vet was quite confused as he could not find any ovaries. only part of a uterus. he also said she has a bladder infection which is most likely why we thought she was in heat. sooo shes home had her surgery and on antibiotics... He said that that is why she has never been in heat. so now im feeling like it was a waste of a surgery since she would have never had a heat. he removed her uterus and said she did really well. she should be back on her feet pretty quickly. leave it to us to have yet another animal with some type of condition or allergy *shakes head*

    heres our dysfunctional family lol

    Husband is fine
    Me on low carb diet due to sugar

    Animals with issues end up with nice, caring people who see to it that their animals get the very best care. And that's the truth!

    I'm glad Lilly is home and feeling better. Not really a waste of surgery, why would you want to leave half a uterus? Could cause a problem later, perhaps. Also, that's how you found out about the bladder infection. That could have taken months to figure out. Same thing has happened throughout the ages with all women. Whenever we complain of a pain or whatever, men say we have our "heat." So, it's good that everything is worked out in the end. Feel better, Miss Lilly!

    we are glad its done and that we know why now that she was having no heat i just hate it when any of the animals go under. I was worried all day . we were very fearful of cancer due to her being a year and no heat so either way we wouldve found out. and yea it was a blessing to find the bladder infection. we wouldve never thought about that at least not for a while since we thought she was just in heat. we are also very thankful that other than the bladder infection and missing parts shes perfectly healthy. so that is a load off my shoulders.

    Listen..I am the Queen of animals with Issues!!! In fact..I have Issues myself! You did good by having her have the surgery. I can bet that would've been trouble down the road. I am glad she is on the road to a long and happy life!!!

    the vet said he has never seen this before. so it was probably a very good thing it was done that way we know nothing will come from it but man was it a nerve racking day.

    and LOL about being the queen of animals with issues.

    Totally agree with all the above comments, and good advice. It was good she had the surgery , as the uterus could have turned cancerous later, and now you don't have that worry, plus she's getting the treatment she needs for her bladder infection. Feel better Lilly, and hope you have a quick recovery. Sending love and prayers your way. Keep us posted on her progress, and give her hugs from us, and lots of extra TLC. Your special needs babies are lucky they all found you, to take care of them, and you are a special and caring person to do this. Good job

    shes set up in our spare xl dog kennel for the night. we havent decided if were going to let her loose tomorrow or not. vet said we can tomorrow but we do have 2 other cats and Tank is all over her cage so im afraid he might accidentally hurt her so she may be kennel bound for a coupe days. looks like there are no stitches but the area is green im guessing it was from whatever they used in surgery
