Salem is in the hospital. He had his 4th urinary blockage. I had to rush him in Monday morning. He was in real bad shape. The vet said I should seriously have the PU surgery done because he keeps getting stones. So, that's what we're doing now. He won't be home for a while. They put a catheter in and unblocked him. So, by Wednesday he should be ready for the surgery. I'm going to visit him on Wednesday before the surgery is done. I'm so scared for him. I wish he didn't have to go through this all the time. After the surgery he'll have nomore life threatening blockages, thank God. He might have some bladder infections, though. Has anyone had any experience with a cat who has had this surgery? I've been reading a lot about it, but if anyone has any advice for me that'll be great. Thanks.

Wow, sorry! I haven't been on this site in a while. Yes, he had the PU surgery and everything went smooth. He hasn't had anymore problems at all. Not even one UTI!

How have you been doing Salem? Did you have the PU? Any more peepee troubles?

Thanks! It does help because I've been so nervous about the whole situation. I called the vet yesterday and they said he was doing great and they were going to try and feed him. I pick him up on Friday or Saturday. =D

Follow-up to my previous msg: Whenever Marmalade would get his UTIs his urine would look sparkly like there was glitter in his urine from the crystals. With the PU, they were never able to form into stones, and he would pee them out. Hope I could help!

I had a kitty about 10 yrs ago that had a PU done before I adopted him. He had a history of stones which necessitated the procedure. Afterwards, he was stone free, but would sometimes get UTIs (urinary tract infections).
