Hey! I'm 7 months post op 4 level spinal fusion for scoliosis. I just had a ct scan because I'm still have a lot of pain. As far as X-rays goes, doctor didn't see bone growth but on my ct scan the radiologist said that he sees bone packing material at the fusion lesion. Question is, is bone packing material the Same as bone growth from my own bone,? I' don't know if this is a stupid question and if any one on here can answer that. That's really all the radiologist said on the report besides no fracture or loose screws or spondylitis.
Thanks for any information on bone packing material Vs. natural bone growth.
