I woke up thinking about Wilbur today and will keep him tucked close in my thoughts and prayers. Sending you hugs too Adrianne. I will check back often for an update.

We are home from the vet. The bone has not healed. The top portion of the bone has slid down over the lower portion, creating an even larger gap between the two pieces. There is no signs of a tumor on the bone, but there are definite changes in the bone when compared with xrays from seven weeks ago.

 

I have to go have a good cry now.

Adrianne, I'm so sorry that Wilbur's leg hasn't healed. :(

 

Did the vets give you any further information, any ideas of what to do next? Have you sent the X-rays to Dr. Couto? Have you tried to get a second opinion?

 

I'm really sorry, I can believe how hard this is for you and Wilbur. :(

 

Sending many prayers.

Rats! I'm so very sorry.

 

I have no idea if this is relevant, but I'll share what happened with my Italian greyhound's broken leg. The first vet pinned it after splintering his bone attempting to put in a plate. Fast forward two months, it hadn't healed. I found a surgical specialist who removed the pin, plated it, and added bone graft to help it heal. Fast forward two months and it's healed well. He doesn't have full use of the leg but the broken bone is healed.

 

The point? Little Merlin had loss of bone during that time from being splinted and not using it. The bone in the wrist was significantly less dense than the rest of his bones.

 

I don't know if that's relevant to you, as I've said, but hopefully it's something like that for your boy. If the bone is overlapping, can they plate it?

 

Just a few thoughts, major HUGS to you both, and best of luck as you move forward.
