2 weeks in Sid's post op.

Today was Sid's 2 week follow up and the doc was not just pleased, but astounded by her progress.
He said that she is well beyond his expectations for any dog, let alone for her being 9 1/2 & that she's at a point more indicative of a dog that is closer to 4 or 5 weeks post-op.

So we are to continue with what we've been doing during the 1st 2 weeks and beginning week 4, start her rehab with 3-4 walks per day @ 10-15 minutes per walk.

How is she walking? Bruising? Pain? etc?
Sid is walking well and it's becoming harder and harder to tell that she even has an injury.
Bruising and discoloration is all gone, well until they removed the stitches today.
Pain, there must be a little since she still favors her leg when standing idle, but nothing like pre-op where she was constantly searching (a term used to describe an animal lifting a leg and trying to put it down, but kind of just hovers the foot instead).
