Im new, bave just recently had a cervical CT myelogram. I have had numerous myelograms,but this one really threw me.
Within an hour I was with tremendous pain in my right buttocks,groin,leg and foot. I ended up in the ER, and then was hospitalized for four days. Has anyone had this happen to them?? How long does it take to get back to normal....my legs and feet now just burn constantly, and its hard to walk....

    Sorry you're having so much trouble. I had a myelogram 1/21 and still have pain in my buttocks/hips/legs. Well, below the waist about covers it. I've been to the doctor many, many times and still don't have any answers. My pain started as soon as the dye was injected. I hope that you soon get better. When did you have the myelogram? What are the doctors saying? Do your legs get weak and trembly? I can't stand or walk very long at all. Lying down on my side helps somewhat but not as much as it used too. Let me know how you're doing now. Take care and good luck.
