Default lab acl surgery questions

hi...
i have a 9 yr old yellow lab...about three months ago, she tore her rear ACL
which had to be surgically reattached....a week after the surgery, she tore the
other rear ACL...more surgery. that was three months ago. she still isn't
walking much...and when she does, she doesn't go far and it wears her out, big
time. has anyone out there had a dog with similiar surgeries? if so, how
long before they were up and about and back to normal? the surgeon said three
months, but she is a big girl and it just seems to be taking a long time. i've
been told it could take as long as six months before she's back walking
around.....does this seem right? opinions? like experiences? any help is
appreciated.

thanks. bill / new orleans, LA

My shepherd had a TPLO on both legs, a year apart, to fix torn ACLs. She was 6
when she had the 2nd one. She really only felt bad the first couple of weeks
and then we had to hold her back the rest of her recovery. By 12 weeks post
surgery, when she was finally turned loose from the rehab program, she was
running full out every chance she got and doing that floating shepherd trot
wherever she went.
