Oh wow, I hope everyone recovers well, heals up, and gets back to normal soon!
Speaking of bumble foot, does it ever truely go away? I did surgery on Ariel for it last fall and her foot liked almost normal again for a while but looking at her foot now, it looks to be swelled twice the size that it was back then. I was thinking of just culling her instead of putting her through all that again. It has to be awful to run around with bumble foot and even worse to have someone pinning you down and slicing open your foot with no pain killers
The root on my roo's foot was pretty large, he never even flinched through most of the process until after the cores (yep, found two kernels in it) were removed. I think the pressure was keeping everything dulled. Once it was wrapped he was walking around on it right away and not seeming to favor it anymore. It was swollen back up tonight but he still isn't favoring it anymore, so hoping the penicillin shots and epsom salt soaks get ahead of it.
