hi! This is my first post, although I have read too many to count. I’m 38 female. I had a discogram procedure yesterday on 3 levels, L3,4,5. Prior to the procedure I had read horror stories. The sugeron and his team were wonderful. I was given Fentanyl and Versed during and following the procedure. So my memory is fuzzy, but I do recall pain, as well as, tingling and numbness down my right leg. I have been in quite a bit of pain since the procedure, which I would assume is normal. I will receive the results from my Neurosurgeon on a Thursday.
I’ve read about “positive and negative” discograms. While I’m not looking for diagnosis, I would love to hear others experience. What did you remember from the procedure? They performed a CT following the discogram. Is it possible to have a positive discogram without excruciating pain during the procedure?
If you had a discogram, what were next steps that you faced? Thanks in advance!
