Bone graft from hip
I've had two surgeries on an aneurysmal bone cyst in my clavicle, one in 1998 and one in 2000. Both times bone was grafted from my right hip to pack into my shoulder and both surgeries need a lot more bone than the drs had thought.
At the first surgery I was told that the bone in my hip would regenerate because I was still growing (I was 11). Some bone may have grown back, but after 12 years since the most recent surgery, I still have a large amount of bone missing from my hip. It doesn't hurt all the time, but it is still slightly tender, especially directly on the site of the graft. It messes with some physical activity (I'm taking dance classes and my right hip doesn't rotate nearly as much as my left and causes a good amount of discomfort when I try.) and still feels "not right".
I was wondering if any of you knew from experience (or word of mouth) that the bone does/doesn't regenerate or that it is normal for it to regenerate only a slight amount. Is anyone aware of anything to do to fix it? My parents, at the time, chose not to use cadaver for health reasons so I'm not sure if adding bone is an option I want to consider seeing as how I went through the extra pain to try to keep me healthy.
Any help would be great! Thanks!!
