I had a conversation with my primary vet this morning about Bernie and his Uveitis/possible lymphoma. I'm not sure what to do. I'm frustrated, sad, angry and I feel like I'm running into walls everywhere. It seems like there are never answers for these cats. It could be one thing, but that is a symptom of something else, we could do this test, but that might not tell us for sure what is wrong. I keep going in circles and the bottom line still is my baby doesn't feel well, and I'm emotionally and financially spent. I want to do something to help him but I don't know what or what will work.
His activity appears to be declining each day. Still eating, but this morning he didn't eat his whole bowl of food. To find out if it is lymphoma, we could do a biopsy on the eye, but its risky, and its a hard area to get a good sample. We could go to an internist and have a scan done to see if there are any masses somewhere else in the body. Even if there are, we would still have to do a biopsy to find out if it is lymphoma. His blood work 2 weeks ago was completely normal. I am continuing w/ steroid drops 3x a day. Apparently with Uveitis there isn't usually any pain associated with the eye... so she didn't recommend pain medication at this point. I don't think he is in pain (cats can probably cover this up well though.....), he doesn't wince or anything, but he is just not acting like himself. I guess we just take it day by day at this point but I feel helpless like I'm just letting him go. Sorry for the rant, just needed to type to get my thoughts out. Thanks.
