The procedure is very interesting and is supposed to relieve pain almost immediately. He should be able to walk with out pain right away. The healing time will be from the incisions which may be a little larger due to the fact that he is a large man. We asked if there was a chance of the body rejecting the stuff they inject and were told that it will make that bone the strongest one in his body and he would not reject the composite stuff they inject. That is good news.
When something like this happens it really makes you thankful for good health and a body that works.
