I'm having shoulder surgery next week for a non-union clavicle fracture. We are going to graft bone?We are grafting bone from my hip. The Doctor says the high use and stress of the shoulder make cadaver bone a bad choice. I'm really worried about the pain. I've heard the hip really hurts bad afterward. Anyone had this done?

I have had back surgery twice. Once with cadaver bones put in to support two titanium rods and another one that they put a platelet screw system over the first one. So coming from my output, surgery would be the last resort. I wish you luck and find a common ground that you can live with. Best of luck to you. Let me know what you decide, just curious... kim

I had scoliosis and they grafted bone from my hip and fused it to the Rod and my spine. That was in 1988. I am have alot of pain in the hip where they grafted. As I get older the pain is getting worse. Putting alot of restrictions on my daily life. They do say this is only a rare occurance, so hopefully you do not have to worry about this issue. Good luck
