Most of you know I had 2 level spinal fusion March 7th. Things have been going well I think with good fusion starting to take place. This past saturday I was outside as usual tossing frisbee 30 foot or so for my dog, getting excersize & what not. Out of nowhere comes a pitbull at full speed in our yard & attacks my dog. I reacted by getting behind pitbull as it had a collar & proceded to pull dog off of & away from our border collie. I ALWAYS have brace nice & snug when up and active. I got him separated away from ours & my wife got our dog inside. I was holding the dog by collar & he snapped at me. I let him go & called police. My back was hurting more than in last month or 2. I told officer story, 3 cars were looking for the pitbull. They were going to put it down I guess our town destroys aggressive pitbulls after an attack after a child was mauled not long ago. Anyway the dog escaped & I have a sore back still. Amazingly my dog did not have the skin broken. He is fine. I am waiting to see if it will start to go away some b4 I call surgeons office. I would think something major I would be in tremendous pain? Therapist thought it may go away but keep an I on it. im only getting PT for hamstrings basically. I hope I dont have a big setback.
