Fallon's front leg swelled significantly about 2 weeks after surgery, she was home already.  It was also very warm to the touch and hurt her--where she could walk (hop) prior, she didn't want to.  Our home vet xrayed it, found nothing.  We had previcox left from the surgery and were instructed to give her that for the pain.  It took a few days for her to hop normally on it again.  Honestly, it is still big looking at the ankle joint (carpus, I learned), and something our rehab doc monitors.  It goes down a fraction of a millimeter every time we visit.  

It took Fallon a couple of days before she ate as well, which prolonged her hospitalization.  We'd visit when we were allowed with scrambled eggs, chicken jerky, her favorite treats and she'd seem interested--then nothing, until about the 3rd day, when she started eating little baby food hot dogs the hospital had.

Sending positive energy and hope that Charlie overcomes all he is contending with right now.  Hang in there, it gets better.

Update:

So last Friday morning I went over there and things were not looking good. His whole body body pretty much blew up to twice the size with water retention. We opted to do a human albumin transfusion that afternoon. The transfusion seemed to have worked as the swelling is gone from his face and belly and also went down in his limbs (though not completely gone). Saturday night when I was there he actually tried to up by himself - he almost did it! He also started eating again, though I've been bringing a nice selection for him (liverwurst, boiled chicken, american cheese, eggs, etc.) and they said he ate two bowls of the food I brought this morning. Things are looking up! Aside from that, they believe he has an infection at the incision site - waiting on the bacteria culture to determine if additional antibiotics will be needed. This has been a long process, but hopefully we will have him home later this week.

I attached a few pictures to this post (if I did it right) and you can see the difference over the weekend. 

- ok I could not figure out how to attach a picture to this post so I started a blog. You can see the two I tried to post there

Ohhhh Charlie, I'm so glad things are better for you today. What a ruff road. You and your people have got to be exhausted after all the treatments and stuff. Thank goodness that transfusion worked to get rid of the edema swelling, poor baby. It does sound like the vet clinic is doing a great job making sure they have all the angles covered, I'm glad they are running additional tests on the infection.

It won't be long until you can get back to being a cuddle bug at home again. Hang in there and know that we are all sending you our best for more healing and good news.

P.S. We're glad you started a blog! If you still want to post pictures here too, read this post about adding images to the Forums. Basically just go to your photo, right click on the picture, choose "Copy image address" and then paste that on a line by itself in your forum post. Make sense? If not, private message me, I'm happy to help.

Thank you so much for updating us. Gonna admit, we were getting a little worried, but feel much better now!!

I know it's hard to stay positive with all the extra "challe ges", but Charlie WILL get past this and his sparkle will be coming baxk soo !   Really glad the clinic is staying on top of everything.  Just getting that infection under co trol will make him feel better.
