Anterior Cervical c5-7 Discectomy & Fusion w/bad follow-up appt

Started by rhondawood on 01/22/2016 11:56am

I had an Anterior Cervical c5-7 discectomy and fusion surgery on December 4th was in the hospital for 6 days.
I do feel much better, however, yesterday I had 6 week check-up and x-ray where they found that the lower Allograft was in several pieces. It seemed concerning to the PA I was meeting with, but yet she was careful not to say too much. She simply recommended that I continue with some of my restrictions and follow-up in 6 more weeks.
I am extremely worried about this and don't know where to go from here, as I feel like this has to be an error on their part or a faulty allograft (cadaver bone). I"m reaching out to see if I can find any advice. I've googled this and can't seem to find any information on this happening to others.
