Advice for cat with Chronic Cystitis requested Page 5 of 9

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
She told me that the tumour is about the same size as it was two weeks ago, so no bigger and she described it as "size of a walnut" this time. The previous time she only indicated with her fingers how big it was and I described it that way myself.

what way vet use to determine tumor location and size?

where is exact location of tumor?
 
John Stanton last decade
The vet palpated the bladder with her hands, she said the tumour is at the neck of the bladder.
 
bunbun last decade
Urine still clear, appetite good, thirst increased (seeking water from bath taps) very social.
 
bunbun last decade
ok.....

what did she do last evening?
 
John Stanton last decade
On the evening of the 17th she spent some time with my husband and I, sat on our laps. She was around at her mealtime, which she sat at for about 5 minutes as usual, and I left the remainder in the refrigerator for her to have later/next day. I do this each day as the other four cats will eat her food otherwise. She hadn't eaten anything different outside to my knowledge.
 
bunbun last decade
not that it matters, I meant 'other three cats'.
 
bunbun last decade
ok---keep me updated

Thank you for your best wishes :)

Numnum is very sociable this morning, urine still clear. I've not seen her drinking or eating (she didn't want her leftovers this morning, perhaps cos it was cold from the fridge) but she is waiting for me to feed her, came to the food cupboard when I was opening it to put things away. Will feed her in a moment.

seems some stablization has occured--BUT -tumor is still my concern-AND-if treatment is correct reduction will occur...

what observation has been made--concerning activeness? please explain in comparison to past..
 
John Stanton last decade
Yes, that would be good to be able to reduce the tumour.

I forgot to mention this to you before, but when I was discussing the progress with the Vet I told her that sometimes her 'clots' are not like 'jelly' but like 'tissue', more fibrous, as I have mentioned here. She said it is very likely that this is the tumour shedding off (or words to that effect). She said this is something that sometimes occurs but didn't say whether this indicates that it is dying off or reducing so it could just be part of the normal course of a tumour.

With regards activeness, I would say she is resting lots in the day, but very alert to people entering the room, she looks up to see what is going on. She tries to be careful on her feet when she is jumping up to high places, as she seems to realise she could stumble, she is after all 15. Before this illness she had already started to really judge jumps before attempting them, for several seconds longer than a younger cat does, so this is normal for her.
I wish I could know what she does when she goes outside or when I am sleeping. When she has been at her worst she was very tired all the time, only really getting up to urinate or eat or drink, so this has improved with her health.

She has been home for her evening meal for several evenings now, just before I retire to bed. Her appetite is very good today, she is still eating small quantities but she makes up for that with frequent returns for more.
 
bunbun last decade
Appetite good (vocal in requesting food) little & often, social, Urine still clear in litter box, not sure what else there is to report today!
 
bunbun last decade
how vocal has numnum been in past in comparison? please explain
 
John Stanton last decade
There was a few minutes in the morning wherein Numnum meowed at me to feed her, as I was near to the cupboards where her food is kept. She still ate little but returned later for more from her bowl. She isn't a very vocal cat when it comes to food, usually she only used to 'speak' when she was announcing her return from outdoors or awaking from a dream. I see it as a good sign of her appetite being normal again.
 
bunbun last decade
ok....

has thirst been consistant currently?
 
John Stanton last decade
Her thirst hasn't been excessive, in fact I can't say I've seen her drink in the past couple of days (since the 18th when she was thirstier) but water is available.
 
bunbun last decade
ok...
 
John Stanton last decade
She is still fine, but her urine has been a little darker and a very small (tiny in fact) clot was passed.
 
bunbun last decade
which way she 'curl' when sleeping? right side? left side?

what changes you observe in sleeping characteristics?
 
John Stanton last decade
She has passed blood stained urine this morning, small quantities, urging more frequently.

With regards to sleep - she seems to sleep on one side then turn over if uncomfortable. I did, however, notice two days ago that she was sleeping with all fours tucked under her, and it struck me at the time that I hadn't seen her do that for a while. I must add that she didn't look particularly comfortable at the time as if the table was too hard. She does tend to do that when resting on the arm of an armchair if she joins us in the evening though, and always looks relaxed then. Sorry I haven't said anything particularly helpful with regard her sleeping characteristics.

Back to the bleeding - is a dose of something indicated?
 
bunbun last decade
Just wanted to add - she doesn't seem unwell but she is quite alert and not really settling this morning.
 
bunbun last decade
She passed a stool in the litter box today, in between urging to pass blood. This hasn't ever happened before as she always passes motions outdoors.

The stool itself was normal, moist but not soggy or runny, but firm and not messy.
 
bunbun last decade
single dose "only" calcarea carbonica 30c

NO! dry food--
NO! food with soy or soy products in it.
 
John Stanton last decade
no milk --unless fresh (raw)
give plain yogurt ..
 
John Stanton last decade
OK will do that in a moment, 17:00 BST.
I usually attempt to give her a crushed pill in a teaspoonful of fresh milk which usually works (otherwise it's a case of stressing her to put it in her mouth and make her swallow). I have some bio yogurt I will give her some of that as well.

She has passed another clot or something and the urine is still stained -hopefully the urging is easing.
