Ebony is having her Luxating Patella operation tomorrow. I know she will be in good hands but I be a bag of nerves. The orthopaedic surgeon operating was great explaining everything and I am so glad that I did change to another vets. It sounded a little bit complicated and it was a very long conversation we had, but this is how I understood things. Her Luxating Patella is a Grade 3. (Grade 4 is severe) Depending on the Xray tomorrow it could be that if her thigh bone is not straight enough he will have to break it to straighten it as if the bone isnít straight the knee will keep slipping back out again. If anybody knows something about this please let me know as when you are at the vets everything seems a blur and you forget half of what they say to you. I just hope that this isnít the case and that it will be just a straight forward operation. I am also worried about how much pain she will be in afterwards.
