Stress definitely plays a role!

I would recommend to run a blood work to make sure that everything looks
good before the surgery - especially CBC portion as sometimes their WBC/RBC
might be a little off -
I don't know if it's conincidence or not - I do believe that stress sort of
triggered the disease - my completely healthy cat Tsubomi died about a month
after the surgery - I think she had lymphoma - but we did not even think of
it as she was completely healthy - I was devastated.
