Hi all, I had an ACDF with graft in April. In August I had a large mass of bone tissue force its way out via the scar from the hip graft. The lump had been there since the surgery and seemed to be getting smaller. We actually named it Junior as at one stage the lump was as big as my hand. When it broke through my scar it was about 3cm around, I have to admit it was the gruesomeist thing I have ever seen. This thing just kinda erupted from my scar site. It was pretty awesome!!
I don't have a lot of pain, but I have suffered stroke and am right side affected. So no pain is not necessarily a good sign. I am posting as Junior is back. It is currently about an inch wide.
Has anyone else experienced this, I'm not sure if I should be concerned that this graft site is still oozing stuff. I also dont want it forcing its way out through my scar again. It wasnt a comfortable process. Started out like a little pimple, and just kept coming ... gross but cool in a sick kinda way lol.
Thoughts would be appreciated.
