I was just wondering if some of you were able to share your CT Myelogram experiences with me. I am scheduled for one on Jan 18th. I just had a discogram last month, so I know it won't be worse than that, however my doctor declared the discogram negative because he said it did not re-produce enough pain, pain but not enough!
My concern is that my test is scheduled at 8am in the hospital, will be there for half a day and I will come home and rest afterwards. I am due back at work the next day, will I be ok? I am up at 4:30am and I ride a school bus at 5:45am for over an hour (I am a Teachers assistant, riding the bus is part of my job), will I be ready to be up and about by 4:30am the day after a Myleogram? I just want to make sure I avoid the spinal headache.
I am praying that this test shows where my pain is coming from, I am 6 months post-op for Lami/discectomy at L5-S1 with continued sciatic pain and low back pain on the opposite side of herniation/surgery which continues to get worse. I have had Lumbar and Pelvic MRI and Discogram and my surgeon says he cannot figure out why I am in pain, everything looks normal minus some scar tissue which is not on the nerves. If this Myelogram is normal then I know its probably the end of the road as what more can he do for me??
Can anyone share exactly what they will see on the Myelogram and if it shows inflmmation (incase thats my problem), just curious if it has helped diagnose new and strange symptoms in some of you also.
Thanks for sharing,
