Red face Your Own Bone Vs. Donor Bone...

For anyone preparing for surgery .......THINK ABOUT USING YOUR OWN BONE......MY surgeon didn't even give me the opportunity to ask , he just told me they use donor bone.......I MADE THE DECISION TO USE MY OWN.....

HE started telling me the graft site would hurt more than the neck site (HE IS RIGHT ) BUT I have pain meds........it takes longer to get around.......

BUT IT IS WORTH IT......a friend of mine came by to see me , she told me she was glad I used my own bone....a friend of hers had a bone graft 8 months ago .......last week she got a letter from the donor bank telling her - her donor bone had not been tested!!!! What would you do ..............

USE YOUR OWN BONE,,,,,,,, more painful maybe, more comfort of mind.
