I have a disc removal(c56) and fusion in 2000.Fast forward 15 years, I , now according to the spin surgeon, have a ruptured disc above and below. According to the him, he wants to do a discogram to check and double check his evaluation of the two ruptured disc above and below. I began to research discograms, and it seems to me that this procedure is not used that much anymore. It is very painful. I am wondering if this procedure is , in fact, necessary. Does anybody have any suggestions about this procedure, or has anybody had this procedure done?
