Bone graft surgery for bone lesion.

I'm wondering if anybody can tell me about the RECOVERY of bone graft surgery.
The bone will be hollowed out and filled with artificial materials.

This is my ring finger proximal phalange.

I'm not worried about the actual surgery I'm wondering what will happen AFTER.  Will I need a cast??  Or will they just splint it?  Anybody know how LONG?

I'm going on Monday to set it up but I need to know these things to plan the correct date for surgery as I have a family.

Splint will be enough to keep your finger immobilized. Any healing like a bone graft will take 4 weeks of time in a minimum. (You are filled with foreign bodies)  Exact time would be given by your orthopaedician.Take care!
