Am wondering if anyone out there has Lupus (SLE) and has had either success or problems with ACDF surgery. Am looking for suggestions on whether to use my own bone or cadaver bone (I have one doctor who SWEARS I need to use my own bone because my bone quality sucks, and another that asserts cadaver is better for me due to the same reason). I just want whatever will fuse better.
Also, I have been on Plaquenil for 18 years and I hate to go off to have surgery done. The doctors seem unsure whether I should go off to have surgery and heal.
Any suggestions you have are helpful.
