Myelogram was not painful

Just had a lumbar CT myelogram done this morning. I was nervous because I had read so many horror stories, but thankfully I had a really good experience. I know some patients have bad reactions (especially cervical cases), but mine was virtually pain free. If you are in SNJ and you need this procedure done, I would be happy to give you the doctor and facility names!

Just remember, you can not specifically name any doctor or institute on the public forums - Read our forum rules


  • are not that bad, and if the patient follows the post procedure instructions, generally, there are no issues post procedure.
    I'm glad that yours went well.
  • Thank you! I have also read horror stories that have left me scared. I am glad that it went well for you! I am glad to finally read that this test was not that bad so thank you!!!
