Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
Have you seen any blood since this was removed?
Are his stools soft?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No blood, stool is soft

Thank you,
I am glad to hear that there has been no blood. Since we are playing a bit of time zone tag and it has been a wee while, is he still straining as you initially reported?

He is but we were able to get him in to see his regular vet and got all the answers we needed they didn't think he had anymore in him just that his back side is a little sore so we got him on so pain mess and he is improving. I greatly appreciate all the help but will no longer need any advice at this time
