I got a bad news. I need another surgery. I can’t believe this is happening…
We went for post surgery checkup on Monday. Dog said the bone popped. The bone?!?! My bone?!?! How did this happen? When did this happen? We thought I was healing nicely. Mom was worried about suture band breaking off but the bone? The bone?? Doc said it was extremely rare. Unheard of.
Mom knew Lateral Suture Technique was usually for small dogs but he was so confident… When did this happen? Right after the surgery? During checkup?
The thing is I went back right after surgery because it was red. They said it was ok. And then the week after the surgery I went back again because I developed seroma. They said warm compress 3~4 times a day. So we did and it went away. We followed all orders and I was confined. Mom was watching me 24 hours a day.
Doc said we don’t have to worry about the cost of next surgery. Gee I really hope so. My humans are starving. We’re in debt.
Another surgery… Dog help me…*sobs*
Mom’s depressed. She’s mad, sad, worried, going a little paranoid. How she wishes it was her, instead of me…
So, another surgery next week. Doc’s gonna do either another suture or TPLO this time.
Sorry for the bad news.
