Hey y’all, I wasn’t sure where to post regarding a Discogram procedure, but I’m guessing anyone who’s done a Discogram has had surgery done as well.
Here’s my backstory:
I was diagnosed with a bad L4/L5 and the hernitation was causing nerve pains down both my legs. I got a micro-discectomy at that level on Jan 2018. Although it relieved a lot of pain, it didn’t relieve all of it, and since then the nerve pain symptoms have come back to either the same or possibly worse level. No new signs of herniation.
So 9 days ago, I had my very first Discogram to see which discs were causing pains, and it turns out that both L4/L5 & L5/S1 are both culprits. doctor is suggesting hybrid fusion/adr.
That being said, I am now dealing with elevated levels of pain since the Discogram - i can even feel it when i cough or sneeze, which is something ive never experienced until now. I know elevated pains for a few days after the procedure is pretty normal. But I’m curious what is considered NOT normal.
And so I’m wondering if any of y’all had a Discogram, and how long did the extra level of pains last for you???
I’m just hoping I’m not one of the lucky ones who will have to deal with permenent elevated pains until these discs are finally dealt with.
