Medtronic off lable use of BMP Infuse

I did find out that BMP was used in my cervicak 2 level fusion. I was not infoemed of this, & I would have denied it due to it is off lable for any cervical use. The side effects are multiple, including bone growth in multiple areas that may lead to nerve root compression. I had a C 8 nerve root compression 3 years after my fusion, woke from surgery with difficulty swallowing, which never left me, so I have a feeding tube, I also have micro aspiration that has led to COPD, I had throat swelling that made me very short of breath, & was hospitalized multiple times. I am just wondering if anyone else has had issues with BMP or Infuse.
Thank You.

    You may have seen it already. I was searching around on this and came across a site that appears to be a FDA site but it is not.
    I think its a law office looking for clients and asking for all the info.
    Not a Dot gov site
