pandoramom posted:
My 4 year old mastiff, had surgery last tuesday and came out with very little use of her left leg. I believe from something related to surgery/anistesia. I was told she developed sciatica? can that happen in 6 days that severe? she still has a hard time walking, cant control her leg & has spasams. I am hoping she recovers as well, but she doesn't look like it so far, i walk her 3 times daily for short distance. Try to massage. is there anything else I can do for her? And if she does not recover, what can i expect?
My min pin had it also 6 years ago from surgery & still has problems.
Am i crazy? or is this comon?
