Hi everyone. Its been a while since I posted. Surgery was Nov. 09. During my last follow up, I reported to the dr about pain in my neck and left arm. He sent me for gentle PT. During the initial consult with the therapist, he and my surgeon decided that I couldn't have PT until I had a CT with myelogram, which my dr ordered stat. Miraculously, my insurance approved it in less than 6 hours!
I go for the CT myelogram on Wednesday and I'm SUPER nervous. Could anyone who's had it tell me exactly what to expect? I've not had a spinal tap or lumbar puncture before and I've got some anxiety about both the procedure and the results. I'm not too sure if I can handle another period like my last pre-surgery time (3 years) or the postop period.
I sooooo appreciate any responses!http://www.spine-health.com/sites/all/modules/smileys/packs/Yahoo/worried.gif
