We drove another 4hrs total today to bring Turbo home. He still has a long road ahead. Specialist said it is a “femur condyle fracture” he was able to repair the femur and the condyle ligament however there was significant damage to other ligaments in his leg. He now has physical therapy to do, life long joint problems and something called “cruciate ligament disease” . (Still reading the booklet given to us) BUT we will stay positive and he will heal properly and he will be our fun loving Turbo again! :)
We rushed Turbo to the specialist in Espanola, ON. He said he had never seen a femur condyle fracture in his career like this only in their textbooks. When he opened up Turbos leg he was able to reconstruct the femur and the condyle ligament however he said that there were multiple ligaments that the damage was unrepairable. He did his best and Turbo will need rehabilitation therapy and the long term affects are greater due to now having a joint disease and arthritis will develop. he was awake after surgery and he is being watched carefully overnight. We have to drive 2 hours back out of town to pick him up tomorrow with an extensive post op care package, it’s going to be rough but our Turbo is alright and did not need to be put down :) so we are thankful for that!
