We got my results back today, and while a bit confusing, they are fantastic. The pathologist said the samples were normal. There were no signs of cancer, and no inflammation. My vet is quite surprised, it is not what she was expecting. You might remember that when I had endoscopic biopsies they showed inflammation and areas of haemmoraging in my tummy. That's not there now. Our next move is to cut out the antibiotics I have been on and see how I progress in the lead up to my 10 day check up.
We're all very happy and very thankful for the results. My normal vet and my specialist vet have both seen cats who presented in exactly the same way with the same symptoms as I had who were diagnosed with lymphoma, which is why they were urging me and my mum to be as thorough as we could be. It was what we have been scared of this whole time. Now we know that is not going to be my diagnosis. It does mean we are not certain why I started vomitting blood, but we know we have gotten it under control, and that is amazing. It looks like the combination of the antibiotics and the antacids did their job. I'm now eating about 2/3rds of what I was prior to the surgery, and have kept it all down except for waking mum up this morning with a vomit.
Thanks for your kindness in recent weeks. I am a lucky mancat :)
