  • Well I had my discogram yesterday.. And of course my sedation didn't take so I was awake for the entire thing and all I can say is OMG.. The beginning wasn't to bad but when the Dr. got to my T5-T6 disc and pushed in the meds I think I came about 2 feet off of the table, screamed, and started crying.. It hurt so bad.. I swear it felt like someone tried to pull the disc out of my spine.. I was so glad when it was over.. So at least I know that it is my T5-T6 disc causing my pain and that it has a tear in it.. I am sooooo sore today.. I sure hope it doesn't last to long.. I go back to see my spinal surgeon next Thursday to see if I will be having surgery or not.. I am so tired of pain and pain meds and living my life around what my back can or can't handle I am hoping that we can just go ahead with surgery.. I know my Dr. is worried about making me have to go through that but what I go through now isnt's any better.. All I know about the surgery since I can't find anything online is what my Dr. has told me, and that's that he will have to remove a few pieces of my ribs and collaspe my lung to getto the disc and fuse it.. My T6-T7 is also messed up and so I am hoping that he will go ahead and fix both while he is in there if I have surgery... I hate that I can't find any info out there about thoracic fusions.. Well I hope everyone is having a good new years.. I will let you know what happens next Thursday with my surgeon...
