    what after hardware removal?

    dear all,

    as you might remember I wrote about a friend of mine who had her first surgery back in Dec2008. Her wound also got a staph infection. when they opened her in Jan to clean her they removed the "artificial and natural bone". I believe they were there because of a bone graft or something like that.

    now she's worried because her artif. and ant. bones are removed. she wonders will she have to buy new bones and will she have to buy new rods if they remove these ones out of her because of a possible deeper infection.
