Just received the call today that my fusion is going to be this month! I was almost blown over because I was under the impression early Dec. The Dr is booked solid so either I have it in 2 weeks or the week of Christmas and miss Christmas with my family.
They need to replace all the hardware because of hardware failure and add more BMP to the non union. I have to much to do! The nerves are now kicken in!!
