There are a few concerns with bringing buns outside. First is safety. You would need a safe enclosure like a fenced yard or xpen. Most people here on BB advise against harnesses and leashes due to the danger of injury. Second, it depends on where you live whether it’s safe or not.

Sorry to hear about what you’ve both been through. I hope she is much better today.
The vet was very nice but I feel like she may have made a mistake and tried to come up with reasons why the mistake was made? (the fat, etc) the way she explained it
