Degeneration along spine, cervical, thoracic & lumbar. Hips are a little abnormal-- but doc doesn't think they would have caused the amount of pain he had been in. Knee joints are normal. Blood work came back good. He wants me continue with the medication to see how he is in a few days. If nothing changes then he suggests seeing a neurologists for an MRI.
I came home to a happy dog yesterday.. Running to find his ball for me. He had busted through the baby gate and made his way to the couch... He seems to be fine now!! But I still have him on all 3 meds.
Assuming the spondylosis is the cause of his pain.. Then I imagine its something we will have to deal with from here on out.
I'm suppose to give the doc an update next week, so ill see what he has to say.. But I want to look in other pain management options... He is only 7 so I'd rather not go the pill route. I was told acupuncture could possibly help.
My poor baby boy and his crappy build.
