PU surgery my male cat just underwent HELP if anyone knows

anything about post op healing time.

My 2 year old male cat had PU surgery 7 days ago. He is recovering very well, I think. eating drinking tons of water ( he has been getting bladder plugs on and off for a year. In the past he would barely drink water.
He has a litter box ( he is an indoor and outdoor cat ) so he used to go pee outside.
He is peeing while he is sleeping, in stead of using the litter box. Is this usual after 7 days of having had this operation?
my husband is also expressing his bladder a few times a day and a full urine stream is coming out.

Is it because he is in so much pain and it's uncomfortable? his vet says yes, but I like to ask people that have been thru the same thing, more so, than asking the vets.
any help would be hugely appreciated.
thanks Mimi

It's not a common surgery, Mimi. Have you googled for information? It sounds to me like your vet hasn't been very communicative about this procedure. I've no experience with it myself, but the reading I've done says there are possible complications; the most common one being incontinence. I don't know if you can come to that conclusion this soon after surgery, though. But perhaps you need to be a bit more forceful with your vet in asking questions. After all, you're the client; you're paying the vet; they're obligated to satisfy you, in my opinion.

I agree. Read, read, read. You should really be asking your vet-- if you don't feel comfortable with their answers, you should find another vet. You can always call other vet offices and ask them. I've called numerous vets for advice, and many are happy to give it (or the vet techs will.) I have no experience with it, but I think a vet is the best source, especially seeing as they did the operation.
