Thumbs up These boards helped shed some of the stress

I was very nervous about having a diskogram procedure since I had been told that it is used to trigger the pain in the disk having a problem.
For me it is L4/L5.
I was given great tips on who to try and guide the Doctor during the procedure by letting him know right away when I started to feel the pain and where the pain was and whether or not it was shooting down my leg.

The tips let me go in more prepared and a lot less nervous.

Next step is a diskectomy. I am really looking forward to having no more pain shooting down my leg. I am soooo ready.

Thank you everyone for sharing your knowledge and your pain.
