Unfortunately I'm not talking about a back catalogue of albums here (just a catalogue of "back disasters!").
This procedure is also known as a Discogram, where they stick a (long) needle (with little pain relief) into your damaged discs and inject contrast material into them. You are then scanned to see where the damage is. The (excruciating) pain you feel is part of the diagnosis. :cry:
This is done where an MRI is inconclusive.
I'm really looking to see if any of you other "crocks" out there have been through this medieval form of torture! I would appreciate any comments or advice that you may have ie. with regards to allowed pain relief, drips, what to expect, and how you were for the following few days.
In some ways, I'm not sure I want to know, but better to be prepared I suppose.
