1) That's "bone graft." The doctors are "grafting" new bone onto your old bone much like a gardener will "graft" a tree limb into an older tree.2) Usually, the bone is scraped off the hip, tho it could be from anywhere. As noted above, ask you doctor this one.   danielpauldavis 43 months ago

When I 'told you' about my 'lay-in time', I meant to imply that, like my 'much larger than any you may get tens unit', your 'time-in', *in relation to what you are having done* anyway, will likely be 'much smaller'(shorter).I should have also pointed-out that I needed 'hard bone'...you will need a 'more flexable', 'cartilidgie'(my own made-up wording here..lol) type bone. Turbo's answer made me remember/realize this...Also...I send you Well Wishes for your surgery to 'go through' with the best of success, and 'ease' for you, as well!   Dreama 43 months ago

These are questions for your doctor. If I had to guess(note:this is a guess) they might take some bone from one of your ribs. You will not be in the hospital very long. If all goes well(and it will) you will probably be able to go home the next day.   TurboB 43 months ago

I have a bone graph in my shoulder...I was in an accident that totally 'wiped-out' the entire articulation(the 'ball AND the socket...). The doctor told me I had a choice of having them use a cadaver-'piece' of bone or to have a piece 'taken' from my hip.Although the the cadaver-'piece' would be 'blood-matched' for me, there was a chance of my body rejecting it...a 'piece' taken from my hip wouldn't be rejected, but I'd be taking a chance of ending-up with a permanent limp...So...after thinking about it for a week or so, I decided to go with the cadaver bone. The surgery went well, but after the bone was in me, it started kind of 'grossing me out'. I went back to college while I was healing after the very first surgry I ever had as I was told that I'd need a 'few more' of them and this helped get my mind off the cadaver-bone in me...a bit(I'd planned 'things' so I could have 'whatever' surgery during the begining of summer and would be well enough to go to school during the fall and winter during the six years it all took).The cad.-bone started growing to mine with the help of a tens unit, but one day when I was sitting in class, I turned my body a bit to look at something and I felt it snap...it didn't hurt, but after I felt this, my shoulder went all warm and numb feeling. I can tell ya one thing...I sure thought I was going to throw-up 'on the spot'!That was it for me...as far as cad.-bone anyway..lol They took what was left of it out and I O.K.'d them to take a piece off my hip. This all ended-up fine, but I can tell you...D*ma, did the area where they took the hip-piece HURT LIKE H*LL at first(worse than my shoulder...MUCH!) and it took quite awhile for it to 'get better'. Thankfully, I developed no 'life-long' limp due to it though.I also know that when they 'take and replace bone'...from where ever...they don't put in a chunk of it 'back-in', they actually grind it up and 'pack-mold' it into where ever it's to be placed.I have to tell you that this all took place a bit over 15 years ago...undubtedly 'things' have become more 'perfected' and it's likely that the grafting will go easier for you than it did for me. I also strongly doubt you'll be 'sadled with' a tens unit the size of a small, old-style, tape-recorder...lol I needed a powerful one, but surely even the most powerful of ones are made MUCH smaller now-a-days, if you need one at all(I know they still use them though).I was 'in' for the bone-grafting surgery for about a week...a bit less if I remember correctly, but your surgery is surely gowing to be more complicated than mine. So I can't help you any on that.   Dreama 43 months ago
