So, a few of you know that I was scheduled for a discogram today. I had the study done at 3 levels and even though the radiologist is not supposed to surmise anything without giving a full report, he told me that it is definately the disc causing most of my pain. I kinda reached this conclusion on my own cause it hurt like h3ll when he injected the dye there. He did say that this was one of the most helpful and conclusive discogram studies that he has seen. I laughed through my tears and said, lucky for you I have been going through this for ten years now and so pretty much know what is what in the pain department. If only doctors would listen to me the first go around, so much time and energy could be saved. *sigh* Anyway, I ain't gonna lie, the procedure was painful, very much so. Modern day torture, with a purpose of course. Thank my friend's Christy and Stacey for the bracelet they made me to wear and count the beads on to distract myself. I am just glad that I did not move any in spite of the intensity of pain, and moreso I am glad that it is over!
Now, to prepare myself for surgery...
Thanks to those who have kept me in thier thoughts, and to those who simply keep thier thoughts positive. You have raised me up.
