Star’s progress

Star developed a limp with his right leg about two weeks into his recovery from his arthroscopic surgery on 4/15. It didn’t get better with rest or even a cold laser treatment. So we began a series of three HA (lubricant) injections in his right elbow, spaced two weeks apart. He had his first injection on 5/28, and is scheduled for his next this Friday. We didn’t see any improvement until yesterday. He limped only a few steps on our walk yesterday afternoon.

I’m optimistic, but realistic too. We may have to repeat the surgery on his right elbow. It’s possible that scraping out a fragment of his coronoid may have uncovered an underlying issue. Time will tell.
