I am getting a myelogram 12/15. The NS wants one because there is too much finger pointing going on about why my rt heel hurts/numbness/tingling. This has been going on now for 13 months since my PLIF in Oct '08. The podiatrist says it is not the foot, the Chiro says it is not the foot, the NS says it is not my back. I am stuck in the middle of this. I just want not to feel like cutting off my foot half the time. I have read a lot about myelograms and it does not sound pleasant but it cannot be worse than a discogram I hope. If anyone has experienced this and has pointers to getting through this please post. After this test the NS will remove the hardware from a PLIF at L5-S1 and do what is necessary from the results of the myelogram. I have had new MRI & CT scans but they are negative for this issue.
