Gus tore his ACL in his knee last week. Monday he had surgery to reshape the knee joint to prevent it from happening in the future. He came home Tuesday and has been very drowsy because of the Fentanyl patch which is used for pain management.
He is more alert that the patch is running out and is standing. It will take about 10 days before he will begin using the leg again and then he will progressively use it more. The bad news- he will probably tear the other ACL in his right knee some time in the future. At $2,500 per surgery it is not something I look forward to happening again!
I am glad my gardening friend it better and will soon join me outside again!
Fentynal patch, which is for pain, is removed on the third day.
