Hey everyone! This board is unbelievable. Thanks so much for sharing info and your experiences.
On to my question. Has anyone had a discogram? I am scheduled for one tomorrow and I am scared to death. I had very painful facet injections last week. So that has added to the near panic I am at right now. I really cried, sobbed type of crying and I just do NOT do that in public. I understand why the procedure is necessary. I don't want my Dr fusing something that doesn't need fusing. But the radiology center that is doing my procedure does NOT give even mild sedation. And I cannot take any of my own pain meds. UGHHHHHHH I am a pretty strong person and high pain tolerance after years of lower back pain, laminectomy L4/L5. Facet Neurotomy, ESI & Facet injections, too numerous to count. But I am really worried this will be bad.
