Re: Way Off Topic, But Need Help...
Scot, thank you. I have looked at them and there are a few out there. But what I guess I should have said was "experience with a surgeon". This isn't my first rodeo with this particular injury, so I know what a surgery that did not go as planned can do.
Broz, I have her on lock down right now. Biggest problem I am having is when I am at work the kids and wife, who do not understand what this means, have a tendency not to listen to me. I understand the stress the puts on a family. Belle, my Lab, hates the pen. She puts up a big fuss when I am not here, thus the family gets impatient with her and lets the dog have her way. In this case you can not do that.
I have been through this surgery once and it was a nightmare. Daily trips to the lake, pool, and tread mill were very time consuming. The dog never recovered and ultimately ended up being put down due to intense pain. I am very worried about even going the surgery route. I am thinking about just retiring her early and letting it go.
There is no easy options to this especially when you have been through it already and it did not work.
