Expert:  Rebecca replied 8 months ago.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Leo.

Is he eating? Can you take his temperature with a thermometer?

Is he passing urine?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
He is eating, and only urinating in his sleep, I don't have a thermometer for him.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 8 months ago.

If he is painful, I would want to be sure he is urinating. He should have his bladder checked to be sure it is emptying.

If he feels warm, he may have an infection. Is he taking antibiotics?

Is he getting anything for pain and inflammation?

I would have his surgeon check him out as soon as possible. If I had done the surgery, I would want to know about these symptoms.
