WOW, what an ear full you had from your doc. It really did make alot of sense, his approach. There are many Dr.s out there that still feel your own bone is best. My dr. felt that way but I had to many complications to add the hip harvest to my long list. He has only had one failure with the bmp, mine, figures. But he has had the same tyoe of success with the bone graft also, so it seems they are pretty neck and neck with each other.
I will keep you and Lori in my prayers, I try to keep up with your posts to see how you both are, you have been a great help to me recently, even if I don't reply to yoru posts I do try to read them. Good luck to you also Lorie, I keep watching for your new surgery date. Good luck if I miss it.
I have been not well this past week or two, nerve damage symptoms getting lil worse, so I stopped doing everything, still waiting for improvement. My son will be going to Irag on the 21st, so stress is a big factor too right now.
May God Bless and watch over you both.
