Hello! My beautiful iggy has a chronic transverse distal fracture of the right radius and ulna. Our surgeon placed a titanium plate and screws in his little leg and told us to confine him to a crate. The surgeon also gave me a medication to calm him but I hear his stomach rumble after taking it and it doesn’t seem to sedate him much or at all. I am trying my best to get him to chill out in the crate, but he goes manic and chews the metal of the crate, jumps, moves his legs (including broken one) and screams. I’ve tried sitting next to the crate, playing music, different lights etc.. none of it works. At the last check up the surgeon said the titanium plate is bending. I just want my IG to heal well and live a happy life. It wasn’t good news. I have now removed all couches from my house. My bed is on the floor instead of the frame. There’s nothing for him to jump on and off of. Ive also barricaded the stairs. He’s so full of energy. Even after taken all the next set of precautions I feel he is too active. I really don’t know what to do anymore because I am spending almost all day with my IG and I still feel as if I could restrict his movement more, in a better way. He has another surgery to fix the titanium plate coming up this week as his leg is slightly bending backwards, If you have any advice on healing this fracture, the titanium plate bending, sedative medication, rebuilding atrophied muscle, keeping an IG calm/ methods for minimal activity or anything pertaining to the topic please do share!
