I had my Anterior neck fusion and bone graft on March 30th. I spent 5 days in the hospital due to bleeding from bone graft site. Has anyone else experienced problems from their bone graft site? They took it this time from the front of hip. This is April 10th and my hip is all bruised from the front clear around to my buttock, and I have so much swelling I can hardly walk on that side. I am planning on calling my Dr. on Monday, but just would like to know if anyone else had a similar experience? I am a female age 60, and I had a previous lumbar fusion last July, and the bone was harvested from the opposite hip in the back.
