Anyone have a Luxating Patella Surgery Done??
New to this forum, was on another forum... but no one seems to be able to help me out.
Anyways April 1st my 5 year old mini mare had surgery to correct her lateral luxating patella. It has been two months and I'm at the point of regretting doing the surgery.
First few weeks she wouldn't use her leg. She hopped around on three legs. Now she uses her leg.. but she is just using the 'toe' to get around,
I am back to carting her, physical therapy and lunging- per Vet's orders.
I'm not seeing much improvement anymore. There is still hard swelling around the incision site.
Have any of you had this surgery? What is the recovery time? When did you see actual improvement?
Please I am desperately wanting to speak to someone who has been through this ordeal.
I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much in just two months?
THanks in advance
