I had allograft, BMPII (bone morphogenic protein 2) PEEK cages and rods and screws implanted in my lumbar/sacral spine 3 years ago and although the surgery was not terribly successful regarding pain the fusion itself was successful providing spinal stability (it actually fused very, very quickly) and I never had any known reaction to the implants.  

What kinds of symptoms are you having?
