I found out today I need to have a Discogram too see if I need Surgery (I probably will have too) but I was wondering is that what is it used for? Too see if a person needs surgery? My orthopedic doctor called my pain doctor and my pain doctor will be doing the Discogram. I will be having the discogram on June 1st thats the only time the doctor can do it because he only does one 1 time a week but I am on the wating list too see if anyone before me cancels. Also, is the Discogram worth it? and my pain doctor will be putting me in a "Twilight" for the Disccogram. Is this just a test to see where my Orthopedic doctor needs to do the surgery and tells him where to go in my back for the surgery?
The Discogram is on my L4/5 area.
My EMG shows that the L4/5 is pressing on the nerves.
I'm 24 years old, I have had back problems since I was 17...
June 6th 2012 (I was 20 years old) On my L4/5 I got a Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) with 4 pedicle screws, 2 rods, and 2 cages.
