i hate to be he one who says this to you but if you use your own bone out from your hip, it is goning to be alot longer than an extra week to heal from that site!!! reads some of the posts here or my posts about the experience of the meaning of the word pain is.....i couldnt think of anything bad enough to callit.....it was as bad as the other operation or worse..... i had donor bone for the front of my neck c 5-6-7 and my bone for the back of my neck c-5-6-7....donor bone will fuse ok so long as you dont smoke...I didnt smoke. my doctor made more money off of my hip bone operation to bill the insurance company..mistyone

hi- why dont you have the collar off yet? didnt they do an MRI on you at 2 months to see if it fused? i had mine off at 8 weeks but i wore an aspen collar 24/7 even in the shower....i got a torn rotator cuff from not being able to move my shoulders properly or i dont know maybe it was from my car crash, anyway, which ever the operation made it worse.....be careful ofthat shoulder.....i had my hip used and it was awful. i had pain there for 3-4 months after wards, and it is still senstive, the doc said perhaps as long as up to 1 yr after wards.....this is a VERY DEEP CUT into my back side cheek to the iliac crest......mistyone
