    Where did you have the graft taken from?

    I had a graft from my hip used in my low back surgery. The pain from teh graft site lasted quite a while - though it got better with time. I'd say it took a good 4 months for the dull ache at the graft site to go away. Even now, if I get a massage, and the massage therapist hits just the right point on my hip where the graft was taken I can get a slight twinge of pain.
