My C6-7 fusion w/cadavir bone failed
I have been told recently that a CT showed my surgery 9 mths ago for a ruptured cervical disk was a failure. The reason may be my diabetes caused me not to heal well. I'm not sure what to believe. Both screws have broken and my body rejected the cadavir bone. My options for repairing the problem are to use either hip/pelvic bone for the graft, or BMP. I was also told the FDA banned the use of this substance in cervical spine surgery but not lumbar or thoracic fusions. My Surgeon is willing to use it in a private hospital setting for my surgery, if I want it. He gave me the choice of the 2 procedures. Both scare me. Any points of view would be appreciated.
