Phoebe's ACL Surgery

Today's the big day for her ACL Suture surgery - they elected to keep away from TPLO or TTA surgeries and stick with the simpler Suture technique.

We have an X-Pen for her and are getting the house set up - smooth floors covered, stairs blocked etc.

It's stressful but hoping for the best! I will use this thread to post some status reports etc. and have really appreciated reading the posts from others regarding these surgeries and the recovery progress.

Good luck, Phoebe. Fingers and paws crossed for you here.

Be prepared for a rather big incision and stay on top of the pain meds for the first couple of days. I hope everything goes smoothly during her recovery. Will check back on her progress.

She's back today finally after the surgery - poor girl. 2 weeks for her in the cone of shame - I feel so bad for her. You can tell it hurts, she is crying a lot, but still very happy to be home! It went well and let's hope for a fast recovery - they said she has a lot of arthritis so it could take longer and may not ever reach 100% cured.

MEDS: She got Simplicef (antibiotic), and Metacam for pain 1x a day and that's it for pills - but she also has a "pain patch".
She was on Tramadol before the surgery...that seemed to kind of knock her out....she could really use that right now.


Apologies for this somewhat shocking image - but it's to show those who also are going to have to go through this what they can expect. You can see a clear bandage on the right knee...
