In brief: Bone surgery

Depends. The surgery may not be bad for you if you are in good health and have no complications from the surgery.
On the other hand if you have severe complications then it could be extremely bad for you. You should discuss the ramifications of your surgery thoroughly with your medical team and ask about all possible outcomes.
