Blocked Cat Question

I have a male cat (about 4 years old) who was recently taken to the vet for having a blocked urethra. The vet had unblocked him and gave him a urinary catheter. He stayed at the vet for 3 days. He then came home and we watched him for a day. He still couldn’t pee on his own, was straining, and was trying to use the litter box every few minutes. We took him back to the vet and she was able to express his bladder by squeezing it. So, about 2/3 of the urine he had in him was then emptied out. She said that he didn’t seem like he’d ever be able to push his urine out on his own again and that the most humane thing to do was euthanize him. I couldn’t do it. My cat is a beautiful, perfectly healthy boy. The only ailment he has is his bladder issue. Right now, he is at the vet again with a catheter in. I will do anything to save him. Does anyone know any solutions to this? Is there any way that my cat can be saved? Please help!
