Re: Your Own Bone Vs. Donor Bone...

Well I had donor bone instead of hip bone. My mother had a bone fusion on her lower back 14 years ago and they used both till this day she still has pain in her hip. The same surgeon did my ACDF 2 weeks ago. I will get a faster fusion with the donor bone and is safer for me with my young age. But thanks for sharing that info. I say it is no different then some day needs skin graph, kindey etc.
