Dramaqueen or real pain?

Hi Guys. Sorry long story but I’m torn and hope to find advice. I had my dog neutered last friday (27/4). He was very subdued troughout the weekend and screamed in agony whenever he tried to move and even more when he had to pee or poop (which he restricted to once a day/2 days). I took him back to vet and they said they can see nothing wrong and he’s just a drama queen so I tried to ignore his cries (supposedly for attention) and push him to move a bit. Now two days later he is quieter but still doesn’t want to move away from his blanket. If I put chicken just out of his reach he’ll tiger crawl there, as soon as he gets up his hind legs he cries and tries to hide/returns to his blanket. He’ll go into massive panic mode when I try to lift him onto four legs and the same when he poops or pees. It might be worth to say he is quite young, small breed (terrier mix) and had a bad experience not long ago when he ate sand on the beach and his whole body was full of it. So I’m worried if he either is just traumatized because something is going on on his back end again, if maybe something has gone wrong and is actually really hurting somewhere or he’s just being a drama queen as the vet told me. Any ideas? Any experience?

Personally, I would suspect pain and get a second opinion from another vet.
Good luck and I hope your guy is back to normal soon.

Since dogs instinctively do not want to be down, I would be fairly certain he is suffering real pain. Since your original post was a couple of days ago, how is he doing now?

Hi! Thanks for your views. I haven’t been to the vet yet. It’s really hard to judge. He’s now moving around, sometimes walking really weird (more like dragging his butt) other times (especially when no one is watching) just running up the stairs or after a twig like nothing is wrong until a few seconds later he gives a (small) squeal and sits lies down again. And that seems to coincide with him realizing he’s being watched. But there are also still moments of great panic and screams - when he has to go. So daily improvements but if still weird after the weekend I’m going to see a(nother) vet
