You see, apparently, the ball can only go back into the socket if you try within 24 hours, or at the most, 48 hours. It's too late for us to try and push back the dislocated bone.
Our only other option (apart from hip replacement, of course) is FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy). That is where the femoral head is removed so that both bones are not connected. Some of our friends commented in our previous post telling us that they have known or owned dogs that have gone through FHO and came out ok - some even did agility after that!
Tomorrow, Mika will be going back to the vets to take a blood cell count to make sure he is healthy enough to have the surgery which will be on Saturday.
Mika is happy to be home and happy to be on three legs. He hasn't lost any of his naughtiness, which, for once, I'm happy to say is good. I'm so glad that he is so mentally strong and is such a tough boy! The morning after the accident, he was happily walking on three legs already when we thought he wouldn't even be able to walk! It just goes to show how tough some of these little guys are!! I think that I feel sorry for him more than he feels sorry for himself :)
