Coming Home

Good news everyone. Bender is coming home today after a long stay in the animal hospital.

As mentioned in my previous post, Bender experienced uncontrolled nerve pain pre/post amputation. This pain was not managed with oral medications or hydromorphone injections (injection would last two hours and should last 6 ). As a last ditch effort to break the pain cycle, Bender was placed on a 72 hour constant rate infusion of ketamine and opioids.  Bender appears to be doing much better and is no longer screaming in pain.

I hope the oral medications (Amantadine, Pregabalin and Amitriptyline) can control the pain going forward.

I will keep everyone updated on his progress.

Until I can take some post amputation pictures, here are a few more with all four legs.

    Bender, how are you doing today? We sure hope you are feeling better and that new bout of pain is gone. Let us know OK buddy?

      Unfortunately, Bender experienced another bad episode. He is currently back at the vet hospital and will be supervised for a week. They removed his fentynal patch to rule out side effects. Let’s hope they figure it out. Interestingly, he hasn’t had any episodes at the hospital the last few days.
