dorain is going to see an orthopaedic specialist tomorrow. he has been having problems for a while – he had problems with his back for 18 months which were getting worse and he’s been xrayed and has lumbosacral spondylosis. the question is whether it is causing problems and pressing on nerves, it is certainly causing him to limp and scuff his nails sometimes and he seems painful – no repsonse to glucosamine, non steroidals or acupuncture – so he is having an MRI. He has also been limping on his front legs – nothing on xrays, and he is thought to have a bicipital tenosynovitis – so he is having those assessed as well and possibly arthroscopy – i am not sure. i am panicking. good wishes apperciated.
