Hello, I'm new to this forum.
I had a double cervical disc fusion 5/25/12 due to disc herniation both old and new with severe arm pain. At my last x-ray at 14 weeks out, it showed complete healing of one of the allografts (donor bone) and no progression of healing since week 4 of the second one. The Dr was quiet, said we should wait 8 more weeks and take another x-ray. We would discuss the outcome at that time. I've since read many articles in which they spoke of failed allografts, but not one article gave a time frame to allow for possible healing.
I do not smoke, exercise five days a week and are overall in good health. Has anyone had this issue and if so, could you take the time to explain the time frame of potential healing before deciding the allograft failed and what was done for treatment along with final outcome.
Thank you in advance for your time. happy
