I had a bone removed because of recurring bone spurs. Will that bone grow back?

I had surgery 3 weeks ago.

Without knowing specifics, I would say no. Bones heal, but don't really grow back. Can bone spurs come back again? Yes, they can. I recommend you consult your doctor.

This all depends on what bone you had removed, and how big the bone was. If you had an entire bone removed, it will not grow back. If you had a piece of bone removed, normally up to an inch of bone can regenerate, though it may not have the same strength as the original bone.
