Hi all,

Tomorrow I go to get my neck fused and some bone spurs removed, and I woke up this morning with a wicked sore throat. I don't know whether to blow it off, or to call the NS. I don't have a fever or feel bad other than the throat, opinions or advice?? Thanks in advance and God bless!!



  • Holy Cow!!! This is unreal?!

    I got one yesterday too!!!

    Needless to say I was downing the garlic, vitamin c, collodial silver and everything else I could think of to get me well!

    Luckily - it's gone this morning, along with the fever I was running - whew!

    Good Luck!
  • As much as you don't want a delay in surgery, I think you should let your surgeon know what is going on with your throat. Hopefully it will not be an issue, but your health is important. If you call him this morning, maybe they will just start you on an antibiotic today so that you can move on with surgery tomorrow.

    Just my opinion, but you can never be too cautious. But dang, that is bad luck!


    Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
