So I have an upcoming discogram for L5L4 as part of a set of diagnostics for my FBSS diagnosis for my L5S1 surgery. (6/16/11)
A few of us have this coming up, and many have already had it done. I am just trying to gather and share data to learn about more of what to expect.
For example there seems to be conflicting info on if any (vs none) pain relief is administered before (not inside the disc but on the surface of the skin) and if their are restrictions X amount of hours before the procedure.
That and I think the best way to learn about what is good, and maybe not so good is thru the exchange of information with people either going 'into the club'' or from those already 'in the club'.
Thanks in Advance for Sharing :-)
