Thanks JG. He needs another surgery for a different back problem as well but the neuro said it's too much to do both at once.

Nothing that I don't have regularly except for some liver sausage pate, that I'd also had the night before and a new melon/mango popsicle Saturday morning.

I'll take the sore tongue over the back issue

Did you get stung / bitten by something in the night?

Not as far as I know. Nobody admits to anything.

So probably not an allergy then. Still mention it to your doctor, I'll be asking if you've done it......

It sounds like your mum's didn't go that well so you'll probably be aware of fusions not always being the best, or even the correct, option - no matter what an MRI or CT scan shows. My brother had a lot of leg back as well as lower lumbar, and the neuro fused his spine based on that and his scans. When he was still in as much pain 6 months post-surgery as before, he went to an orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed his problem as two absolutely stuffed hips.

He's 3 months post-surgery for one hip replacement and is doing great. Getting the other hip done in 3 months. He's a bit younger than me, 55.

Did your mum's pain never go away, or did it reoccur?
Sounds like your brother's neurosurgeon may have missed something?

No, mum's spinal fuse was fine, and she never looked back (ha ha )
