Jennifer.. thanks again for everything you do here. Since my wife had a laminectomy done over 20 years ago with her own (hip) bone, I am somewhat familiar with that. She said her hip was the worst part! I will ask about the titanium. And yesterday I did set up a 2nd opinion with another local spine surgeon, who was highly recommended by a friend of a friend. It will be Dec. 9. I expect that one way or the other I will make a decision about what I am going to do by mid-Dec.
I will certainly keep this community informed. Thanks again!

Good evening @birdman518 and @jenniferhunter It appears that you two are laying all the cards on the table. I don't want to interfere. I just want you to let your wife know that I agree with her remarks. I had a laminectomy many, many years ago for which my own hip bone was used for the fusion. This is the first time I have heard about anyone else having that type of surgery. Unfortunately, I agree with her. My hip was and continues to be the "worst part". I must admit I was surprised that the patient's bone was still being used for this surgery.

Whatever you decide @birdman518, I hope for the very best outcome. You have a strong ally in Jennifer.

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
Chris
