Re: is my cat going to die?
I do know crystals are more prevalent in males. We've had a fair number of cats with crystals around here, but I really haven't paid attention to the split between males and females. So maybe someone else will have a better assessment for you.
I really can't give you any opinion on the nerve damage. Some nerves regenerate, other don't. It may depend on how damaged or the cause (trauma vs disease). It's very difficult to tell. The one thing I would say is if it appears to be trauma related nerve damage and there's a way to express her bladder manually that the vet can teach you, don't be hasty in making any decisions. Give her some time on anti-inflammatories to see if she makes a recovery.
Fingers crossed for you.
