Pretty good news

At my doctor appointment last week we found out the bone graft is alive and making bone. They took a panoramic of my face again and the difference between last time and this was amazing, you can see where it is filling itself in. It still has so far to go but its worth the wait (probably another 6 mos of waiting or so maybe more). By this time last time we knew things were going to turn out badly b/c there was barely any bone in the xrays and they couldnt tell if it was 'alive' or not b/c there was no filling in happening. Dr Indresano said it wouldnt be filling in like it is if it wasnt alive and well. I am trying not to get my hopes up but its hard after so many surgeries, maybe this will be the one that sticks. On a bad note, my hip is still fractured and aches alot so I have to be careful but that is fine with me, its the jaw I am worried about. Just wanted to do a quick update.

hi,
I really understand what you're going through, I have ameloblastoma too so I share your feels, even though mine is the right mandible molar.
I'm glad to see your recovery.
Keep holding on. God is good.
