Hi Cole, I wondered where you had been hiding. Ok, let me get this straight, are you having a lumbar fusion and they are taking bone out of your hip for the fusion? Why are they taking bone from both hips? Normally they only use one hip. Any reason your dr will not get the graft from a bone bank? Have you asked him this? People do seem to complain more about
pain from the donor sight than the actual surgery itself. How many levels are being fused? Also, I take it there will not be any hardware involved, is that right. I sure hope so, everyne I know with hardware end up with so much pain, their body does not want to accept that foreign objects and they end having to go back in and remove the hardware.
I know alot of questions but let us know what going on here. Susie
