MRI results came in for Buster. They did find a bulging disc, but the doctor said it’s so tiny that they wouldn’t generally do surgery because most dogs wouldn’t even feel it.
So instead of doing surgery today, they’re going to do a spinal tap to see if it’s some other type of inflammation, to make sure I’m not putting Buster through surgery and spending all that money if it won’t help him.
So he’s coming home tonight. They’ll have the results of the spinal tap tomorrow, and if it doesn’t show anything, they’ll proceed with the disc surgery on Monday.
