Yesterday was the two week mark since Natasha’s surgery to repair her torn CCL. Yesterday was also an examination by the surgeon to review her progress. The verdict on her TPLO recovery?
The surgeon was very pleased with the speed of Natasha’s recovery. She has both the ability and desire to flex and use the knee – great signs. We had already weaned her off of the pain medication and antibiotics, so she is medication free.
The problem with her knee feeling so good is that it is also easy for her to damage the knee at this point by using it too quickly. So, as expected, we have four more weeks of crate time and short, escorted bathroom walks (with the sling) a few times a day. At that point, we will be able to start taking short walks without the sling.
So Natasha continues to get lots of one on one time with Hu-dad as she snoozes in a crate beside his desk all day. While she is a restless and bored, she does consider a round-the-clock human servant to be a big positive.
