As many of us know from having surgeries the recovery from the position we were put in for hours can be just as bad as the actual surgery itself. My much loved dog had surgery last Friday to remove 22 stones from his bladder. Recovery the first week was pretty rough for the little guy. But fast forward to a week later when he is off all his meds he began to get worse and worse. A emergency trip to the vet today whom I just knew were going to tell me that the surgery failed. Nope surgery was a great success. But......he has a pinched nerve now in his back and they suspect it was from the position he was in during surgery. WHAT????? So now the poor thing has another week of quiet time, no walks, no stairs ( I havent figured out this one yet since my house is 3 levels and I cant carry him up and down the stairs), no jumping, basically the dog is not allowed to do anything. He will be on Tramadol and Somas for a week. I had to laugh as I watched him try to walk after taking his meds. I wont have to worry about him going too far, he couldnt even make it to the bedroom. He gave up and slept in the hall. Of course I brought his bed to him. After his recovery from the bladder surgery is over in about 6 weeks if he still has problems he will have water therapy.Maybe my dog and I can do our therapy together!!! On a serious note, has anyone else had a pet with this issue and what was the prognosis?
