Interesting thing about the article you linked to, I had the same experience where all the Dr.s involved with Roscoe's surgery downplayed his recovery and said he would be fine in no time and wouldn't need follow-up care. I feel like we were underprepared as to what to expect during recovery which

Thirdly, your Surgeon evaluated Saba's situation and understood what needed to be done to give her the best chance at a quality life!!

Now, moving forard, Saba is very, very early in recovery. You've been given a couple of possible scenarios for her sudden I set of pain (all treatable!). Phantom limb pain is the onset of sudden

…limb pain?

Even before he got to the point of amputation, he went through sooooo much ! It wouldn't surprise me at all that he may have a slower recovery than some! Although, It sounds like it's fairly " ormal".

And great news about the clean margins!!!!

It took me tnree weeks before I felt

…will have a rythmn that works for you and Saba.  The shrieking does sound like phantom limb pain.  Intense but short lived.  Hoping for a smooth recovery for beautiful Saba.  Keep us posted on your beautiful girl.

…reaction and the GI distress caused by the medications. FINALLY on Nov. 28th Roscoe underwent a successful amputation of his front right leg.

Recovery has been more challenging than I expected. He has had quite a bit of what I can only think to be phantom limb pain in addition to the more acute

… and sometimes it's a disc issue or pinched nerve...all treatable!!

You need to have your Vet check Leroy over and get him back in the road to recovery. Complete rest and some anti-inflammatory meds generally do the trick. Leroy may also have some phantom limb pain and the Vet will prescrbe

…forever - most dogs recover in a few weeks, and with adequate medications can do well.  Gabapentin can be prescribed to help with nerve pain.  Recovery takes 2-3 weeks for most dogs, but could be longer since Saba is larger (sometimes they take a little bit more time to figure things out).

…also very reassuring for me. 

Do hope Tank feels better soon. I was really stressed about Meg. It took two or three weeks but she made a full recovery and her front leg/shoulder seems as strong, if not stronger, than ever. Keep posting, and I'll keep an eye on this thread in case anything else

…sense!  lol

12 days is still somewhat early - less than 2 weeks!  This is major surgery, it takes time to recover, and Tank is still in that recovery phase.  How soon do you think that you would be up & about, without medications, if you had a leg removed?  Sometimes a little perspective
