    Well we are home from getting Diesel. They said all went well. He had the prolapsed tissue removed and the remainder seen back in place, he also had his soft palate shortened. He is very groggy. He's having a hard time peeing and eating. Anyone have any post op experience after these types of surgeries? Total surgery bill was about $1300.

    I am just seeing this now and am so sorry that you have Diesel have been through so much. It does sound like Diesel has been in good hands overall with knowledgeable vets. We went through both issues with Frank, just at different times. His recovery from the soft palate surgery was longer because it was a tied to other complications. I would hand feed him slowly soft food for the first couple of days, then I mixed dry kibble softened with warm water and some wet food for him to eat.
    For his prolapsed urethra, we just got him neutered and so far, that seemed to solve the problem. It has only been about five or six months since we had it done, but it sounds like Diesel had a more serious issue.
    It seems like your surgery price was very reasonable and I hope that both procedures help to solve his issues.

    Sending many positive thoughts for a quick recovery for Diesel with no further complications!

    Thanks for all your responses. So far his recovery is going okay.. he seems like he is a fair bit of pain when he pees as he stays squatted (he as always squatted) for quite a long time. He is in pain meds 3 times a day. Not much blood from the urethra so that's good. As for his palate that seems to be the worst, we slowly feed him soft/mushy kibble but he gags and coughs every few bites. His breathing is just awful - so loud and sounds congested. I'm just hoping it's due to a bit of swelling, and will decrease. The vet also sent him home with a sedative med (2-3 times a day) I actually haven't given him any yet because he's sleeping almost all day anyways so I don't think it's necessary right now.

    Well it's 3am here and we just all had a rude awakening - Diesel projectile vomiting everywhere.very small amount of blood at the very end. Poor guy was so embarrassed we could barely get him out of the corner by the end. Will call the vet in the morning.. is this normal??

    Keep us posted... meds may be too much for his belly. Was the vomit all his food or bile?

    Poor Diesel. I remember how badly I felt for Frank during his recovery. It might be the meds. When we took Frank home, we had so many different meds and they also included one to help his stomach settle and one that was a slurry to help coat his throat. His throat is probably has inflammation from the surgery, then vomiting probably aggregated it. I would imagine that is why the bit of blood at the end.

    Sending many many positive thoughts to Diesel and you all during his recovery.

    Our vet thinks diesel has esophagitis from his endotracheal tube during surgery. We have been given a wack of pills to give him for the next month.. but, if the vomiting does not decrease in the next 24-48 hours we have to bring him in and he will be hospitalized and have further testing done
