Re: Myleogram information
I have had two of them, one just lower back, the other my whole back. For me both were painful. Don't want to scare you, but it isn't much fun. They gave me a local on the full back one, and I still felt the needle in my spine. Then I had to hold onto the tilt table in pain as the dye went up and down my spinal cord so they could take pictures. Then off to the catscan machine. It was about 4 hours of pain and I could barely walk when I got out. Didn't have a headache either one, no after effects or problems. But it's important you get one, they can see things wrong that they can't see with just a regular MRI or Catscan. I had two demerol, one before going in, and one after, they let me take my own pain meds, and it didn't stop the pain much.
Good luck, like I said it's not much fun, alot of pain, but then with our backs we are used to it, ick.
