I had the discogram on Thursday the 19th. They were to look at L2-3 and L3-4. Right after the discogram we went to get the CT. Thursday night I got a call from the doctor, at home, at 9:00 saying he just got a call from the radiologist. My stainless steel hardware from 1993 must have shadowed my L3-4 disc so the PM doc got the L1-2 and L2-3. So Monday I do it again and he'll aim for the L3-4. I will say he was very apologetic and they'll cover my co-pays. The PM doc gave me his personal cell phone number to call anytime. So Friday when the CT place called me to say I missed my Friday CT I had to call him to say "they thought it was today". He had his staff straighten it out so the CT is scheduled for immediately following the discogram tomorrow.
My brother says I should be more upset. But I think of it this way....I will get class A service from the PM office now and going forward. And, since my husband was laid off and I'm on disability it's not disruptive to our daily schedule to do it again. And it's not costing any more.
Discogram, encore, tomorrow :-)
