Thread: tainted bone grafts

  1. #1

    Default tainted bone grafts

    I am looking for information on problems with tainted (stolen) bone grafts. In 2005 I had a cervical fusion and got a letter saying that the bone that was put in my neck was stolen and recalled as part of the N.Y. scandal. I am starting to have problems and cannot find any follow-up information to see if other people are developing problems as well. Is there a forum for this that I am not seeing?

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
