Right now my dog Darla is undergoing slipped disc surgery.  I noticed that someone else had a similar procedure on their dog in 2013.  Don't know if they still are part of this forum but wanted to know the long term results from their dogs procedure.

Our fam wishes the best of luck and send you our very best energy!!! My lex has a slipped disk but is too old for the surgery.  Wish I could give some advice.  Hope all goes well :)

Thank you for the well wishes. Just got news that Darla made it out of surgery okay after four hours under anesthesia will know more tomorrow of the outcome.   There is a small chance of paralysis.

Last update is her vitals are within normal limits and they are trying to get her to eat. Hopefully they will let me see her this weekend.

My husband and I went to see Darla this evening. It was upsetting to see that she was unable to put any weight on her legs or move her body except for her head. They say it's not unusual at this point. It is going to take a lot of physical therapy and time to heal.
