I recently had curettage and bone graft surgery on my left femur. I now have a bone cyst. Will this require further surgery?
No. As long as the cyst, is not causing any problems, such as pain, inability to walk, pinching a nerve etc, there is no need to do anything about it.
I have FD of left femur (head and neck) approx 1 X 3 inches. 2 pins and bone graft w/ surgery in 2002. Should I have restrictions on lifting?
Probably not. Your exact repair is not entirely clear from your message however in general only months after repair the bones is as strong or stronger than it was prior, unless you had abnormal healing. You should double check with your orthopedist to find out if they had any such concerns, usually you should also have physical therapy that would have stipulated weight bearing. Be well. Read more...
