I had a 4 level discogram this morning and it was extremely painful. The Dr. had to remove and reinsert the needle at L2-L3 and then reposition it a couple of times as it was too painful to leave it where it was at. I had pain at 2 levels although one wasn't too bad and wasn't the same as my normal pain. L4-L5 seems to be the disc that is causing me all of my issues. I am in much more pain than I was before the test which my Dr. told me to expect. I have been given some stronger pain meds than what I normally take. About how long should I expect to deal with this increased pain? Other than ice and keeping on top of my pain pills, is there any other advice any of you can reccomend to make it a bit more bearable or speed the "recovery" process? Thanks.
