How Does A Knee Ligament Surgery Hold Up Over Time – KC

My Shepard/Golden Retriever mix had surgery over 2 yrs ago when she was 8 yrs old. She is a big dog (not fat, just big). It had to be done a second time after about 6 wks. She seemed to be a bit better.

Now she is 10 yrs old. She has trouble with the stairs in our home. My bigest concern has been that in the 2 yrs. since the surgery, the drain site has never healed. It still seems to open and drain sometimes. As soon as I think it is finally getting better, it opens again. I have had her on antibiotics several times. Nothing seems to work.

Now she is getting older and her other side now seems to have problems, probably from compensating. I love her!

How do I tell if she is having to much pain? Any suggestions to help her? I don’t want to put her down – I love her and she will do anything she needs. I don’t want her in pain all the time. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time!

    Which surgery did she have? There is something quite wrong about this situation in my opinion. What does her surgeon say about this? I would start by getting a second opinion.
