I am glad to read that you are doing so well. I have yet another question for you. Did you give blood before your anterior fusion and if so, how many pints did you give and did they actually use them.I have already given one of the three pints my doc wants me to give.
One other question. Did you have a bone graft from your hip or did they use donor bone.
My operation is on the 17th and I am trying to get as much info on the anterior approach as I can. Although this will be my 6th back surgery, it will be my 1st one done from the front
As always, thank you for taking the time to help.
