Hi there i am booked in for C5/C6 ACDF with a plate rods & screws. I have asked if he could use my own bone graft rather than allograft or a cage. This was a personal choice because about 5 years ago i had C6/C7 ACDF no plate rods or screws plus a doner allograft was used. Within 2 months the graft crashed down into my C7 vertebra. I know it wasn't the grafts fault but if i'm going to have bone wobbling around in me i think i would prefer it to be my own. Anyway back to my October surgery so is there anyone else having surgery in October & wants a buddy.
