Im a newbie to the forum and am seeking out information regarding the procedure of a discogram. I am 100% confident in my surgeon who is to perform the fusion. In 2006 I was rear ended by another vehicle hard enough to cause some bulging discs at c4 c5 c5 c6 c6 c7, which have caused me alot of pain, not to mention a severe change in lifestyle. Im 35 years old and the mother of 3 and have decided to have the fusion done after 4 medical opinions. I have never had any surgeries or have been hospitalized for any other reason then normal childbirths, so Im a little apprehensive when i heard what the discogram entails. Basically, i just want to hear some experiences and know if Im making a mountain out of a molehill. I just wonder if the pain from the procedure will be any worse then the pain I have on a day to day basis? I do not take narcotics on a regular basis(although I have been perscribed tons which I never filled) so I usually take a ibuprofin. I do take a muscle relaxer maybe once every few weeks if the pain is intolerable.
