Oh my goodness Monte.....big dawgs certainly do need an ample supply of drains!  But that's  all done ao moving on to......

YAAAAAAAAY FOR  MONTE DOING SO WELL!!!!!   We knew you would  get past these temporary  hurdles  because you, my man, are a BIG DAWG WARRIOR!!😀😀

Sounds like you may have a little allergy  going  on.  Glad you got that Benadryl  injection. 

Monte certainly  looks like he's  as content as can be in that photo...sittin' pretty sweet boy!

He'll get all his mobility issues worked it.  You'll see a measurable improvement  in another thirty days or so.  Now that the recovery  from the surgery itself is getting further into the background, he can focus in gait adjustments .  

It is o good to hear from you.   Thanks for the update.  Keep the good news coming!

Hugs

Hello everyone!

I know it's been a few since I've been on here with an update so here are a few pictures of Mr. Monte!

He is shirtless now since the area of incision has healed and he's not licking!  His elbow is healing but we are going in tomorrow for another laser treatment on the area.  Monte is off all meds and allergy issue has cleared.  His appetite is great but oh my gosh has he lost the weight.  I'm not used to seeing his ribs or hips!  Doc says hes healthier with less weight due to the fact he's an amputeeheart

Monte will not be going through chemo.  I wasn't sure about it since he had already been through so much.  Then I was told that being as I had an owing (small) balance on him, he couldn't have treatment.  I was a little taken at that since I paid soooo much to the hospital already.  Anyway, I'm ok with him living each day as is without it!  Like I had said back when he was so sick from the infection, I just wanted him homeheart

He's standing longer, getting used to getting up and down, and somewhat used to riding in the van again (sitting instead of standing).  There are times though he will yelp as if a sharp pain hits him.  Has anyone had that happen to their fur baby after surgery?  It's not frequent but boy you know when it hits himsad

Thank you all for being here and for all the encouragement!

Love and hugs,

Elizabeth and Monte

I remember a previous dog would yelp,,, maybe once a day,, etc  when running,, it was a pinched nerve,,, surgery disaster... so...  if its once a day and its the neck,, I say be careful..

Oh Monte you are SOOOOOOOO beautiful, boy 💘 

I totally love the markings and the regal Dane pose 👑

Elisabeth, I have to say I am truly impressed with the way you looked after your sweet pup, you went through more than most of us here but stayed focused and strong and as a result Monte is back to being his lovely self, largely thanks to you 💓

You are a wise woman and already understood the secret of life: the importance of seizing the day and be happy with your baby, sharing the little moments and building wonderful memories with him 💕

Glad to hear you decided which route to take, not pursuing chemo is a good choice, one that suits you and him.

As for the sharp pain episodes, yes, that happened to others here and if my memory is not failing me most of the times it was phantom pain connected.

It appears sometimes phantom pain can be present for long(ish) periods of time after recovery is over.

I'm sure others will be more precise and will share their experiences soon. 

Sending you an avalanche of kisses and cuddles, 😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
