Anyone out there ever have a Discogram? I had one a week ago and it was probably the worst pain I've ever had. The doctor woke me up in the OR and the next thing i know I was screaming and flailing on the table and they had to restrain my legs and put me back to sleep. I woke up in recovery crying. I am 6'4, 260 pounds, former college athlete and I was crying like a baby.
Is this procedure supposed to go that way?
I have my follow up tomorrow morning with my PM and i feel like starting the meeting off by punching him in the face - but of course I won't. Since the discogram I havent been without pain in my legs and back. It's been awful (I know, poor me). The PM said that he couldnt get into the L5/S1 because there was too much scar tissue from the laminectomy so he hit the L4/L5 with the dye/pressure and that is what lit me up like a Christmas tree.
If anyone has had experience with the discogram I would greatly appreciate an answer. Thank you.
