I took her off all meds, after day 4 instead of day 10. Though she was on few days before surgery too (so maybe 7 days). I didn’t like how she was acting, and she seemed fine near the next dose, so I don’t think she was in that much pain. Those meds were highly addicting. And I do think she went through withdrawal for a day and a half after she was off. Went from super sedation one minute to wide awake and disoriented the next, then back to deep sleep minutes later. I was worried, but suddenly she just became herself again, recognized me well and responded. And no need for meds cause she even wanted to play. I had to kerp her quiet best I could.
I still do sometimes, and it will get harder the better she feels. I take her back in 3 weeks for xrays to see healing progress. She’s still has to be confined for 5-7 more weeks.
We’re getting there. Will be glad when it’s over. And hoping she heals well. Keep praying.
How are you feeling? Praying for you too!
Posting a couple pics, one the day after surgery, with all the bruising on her leg. And one from now, 8 days later, same position. I think we made progress. 😁 Stitches kinda on side and you can’t see, but originally much more bruised than the leg pic shown. I thought I’d spare the gory details. Few humps but we are getting there. 😁
