ct mlogram lumbar rea

had my 2nd ct mylogram last monday. 1st one a resident hit my artificial hip. a diaster, had to schedule new scan. new scan went well was under sedation. now my legs are extreamly numb , they said take 5 days to rest. Still numb and weak. Radiologist said this was normal. waiting for neurosurgeon to get me in for a appointment after reading scan. has anyone experienced this?????  thanks so much



  • I have had several myelograms, last one last week, always told to lay flat for 24 hours afterwards to let spinal sac heal, never had any numbness or weakness afterwards. I think I would call my actual doctor to clarify if this is a normal reaction

    I have a number of myelograms.

    The first was in 1978.  After the procedure I was told NOT to raise my head for 24 hours or I would get a massive headache

    Then in 1986 I had another myelogram, this time I was told NOT to lay flat for 24 hours

    But as challenger said I would definitely contact your doctor
