Is Myelogram the decision maker
Saw a new neurosurgeon today who ordered a lumbar myelogram to get a better picture of the nerve roots. The EMG/Nerve Conduction studies indicates it is somewhere between L2-4 as L2 & 3 can't be localized. The MRI and CTscan indicate it is L3-4.
He is suspicious of something neurological. Is this a back door attempt to get more info from a neuro point of referrance?
Is it possible he is also testing the spinal fluid that is removed before injecting the dye?
I have had this before, granted many, many years ago. But I also had horrible complications.
I just saw the neuro today and the test is scheduled Mon at 7:30 with follow up next Friday as I am ready for answers.
The neurological concern has followed me since I was in my young 30's after a horrible car accident, but no one can ever find evidence. I have been tested again and again.
I just want answers.....Thank you for taking the time to read my story!
