Well I had my discogram on new years eve. It went well and wasn't too painful. I slept most of the time from the versed and only woke up when the dr hit the disk causing the problems. I woke up screaming! All I heard was the nurse say "no she was just snoring" while I was yelling. I think he may have been checking to see if I knew that he was in the disk or something. Anyway I had no clue. So I was screaming and crying asking when it was going to be over because it was really horrible at that point. They then gave me more versed and that is all I remember.
While in recovery the dr came and talked to me about how the procedure went. He asked if the last disk caused more pain than the first and I said yes. I was really drugged up at this point so it was hard to really talk to him. He said that my S5 disk is the one that is really messed up. He said normally dye fills the disk evenly but mine just poured out and since it was painful the neuro should have what he needs now to move foreward. So I think I had a postive test?! It sounded like it to me but I was really drugged up. I am glad to know what is going on and that the disk really is the problem.
This particular disk is very degenerated and is herniated inward touching the nerve. So I am assuming from this test the disk may be ruptured or torn for the dye to pour out? Is that what usually causes this? I hope this is all my neuro needs now to finally do the fusion. I am so tired of living in pain.
