Default sophie surgery update

thank you for all the kind words. very helpful and supportive.
got to see her tonight. should come home friday then 8 weeks cage rest. pic of xray is before and after. portions of the ulnar and radius were removed. this corrected the elbow incongruity and the mis-rotation of her paw.

Sophie, so glad you made it thru surgery OK. Get home soon and start healing in the loving arms of your family. At least they gave you a pretty pink cast!

Slinging healing drool, kisses and belly rubs your way.

Yay, the surgery fixed it! It will be better once you're home again...poor girl. What a relief to have the surgery over and to know it was a success! Now the hard part will be getting through the 8 weeks of restricted activity.

Thank you for the update, it's appreciated.
So, is it voice? Or just the face
that captures me, and haunts me so.
Or, am I meant to never know?

We have had a similar op on our basset, Bailey. He had elbow dysplasia, and 8 weeks ago he was operated on. His leg just had the Ulna cut, and no pins, but he has made a full recovery. It never really got him down, or even stop him doing much. We were restricted to 3x 10 min walks a day. After about 5 weeks the limp went, although he was stiff on first waking up. after 6 weeks we hardly knew it was done.
I really hope you have the same success as we did.

Awww look at that face, she looks so sorry for herself. I'm sure she'll be much better when she gets home to her mum for lots of TLC. Sending lots of healing drool, and at least they gave her a pretty girly pink cast
