We don't keep ours in a refrigerator. They go up to blood bank, who puts them in the freezer. I think we keep ours for 6 months, although in most cases we don't get the chance to put them back on.

Our hospital policy is to keep the bone at -70 degrees for up to 2 years. I had to look it up to be sure - seems like a very long time to me.
