Good luck, CCN. I'll be praying for your kitty. Please give us an update after surgery.
Please, C, whatever you do, don't let your vet give your kitten the long acting antibiotic shot, "Convenia" after her surgery. It is dangerous. Especially after surgery involving 2 issues. Many of us have had a note put in our pets chart saying "NO CONVENIA!" We have a thread on this forum we bring to the top often. I will bump it up. Please read!
My kitten is fine! She's resting comfortably and home, as I type this.
Kitty has to have surgery again in six weeks when her anatomy is a bit larger --- the stalk is still there (small) and the vet is hoping to fully remove it. If doesn't work, full surgery with a surgeon will be necessary. I can't think that far ahead. C~
Oh, no. I'm sorry to hear this, C. Yes, no use stressing and worrying any further over something that may not happen.
What's your kittens name?
Sending hugs, positive vibes and praying the next surgery is a complete success!
UPDATE: The first ear polyp surgery was unsuccessful. Her canal was too inflamed and too small for the instruments to pass through.
FAST FOWARD 11/7: She had repeat surgery, and the vet was able to remove the complete polyp/stalk ~ She has some residual eye issues now with a 3rd eyelid present (like a fish) which is expected to go away after she heals completely in 6-8 weeks. We were warned about it as a side effect of the trauma so close to the cranial nerve, etc. We are so happy she's off all antibiotics, no more ear pus/infection, and she seems happier!
UPDATE: My cat is doing very well since her ear polyp surgery. Her eye is slowly getting better .. tiny bit since surgery but moving in the right direction. The vet said 6-8 weeks or longer for her eyelid to be back to normal.
