Re: Just out of the Hospital for my 8th Surgery
I've rejected cadaver bone and cadaver bone infused with bone cells taken from bone marrow from my hip. My doctor says he sees cases like mine about once a year and I've been that case for the last two years now.... he said the best option is to be as conservative about recovery as possible; so I used a bone stimulator before any deterioration even happened, used a cast the whole non-weight bearing time to make sure there was complete stability, and he added a fusion to the original surgery for more stability. So far this one looks ok but I have yet to reach the time frame where the non-union starts to show.
I hope things work out for you...good luck.
