BMP lawsuits are still on-going. Some have been settled, but new ones are commencing...so you have a tough decision to make. Your fusion is going to be so high up. I wonder if that makes any difference?
The last surgeon said he can use other things as well if I don't want BMP. He said there are artificial bones and cadaver bones. I think he said he would use both...he said he needs a lot of material to fill the area. I just hope I fuse. I wonder what determines if a person fuses or not.
