    Unhappy Getting a Milogram tomorrow.. what should I expect??

    I am still in the phase of now knowing for sure whats wrong w/ me.. have low back pain (L4, L5, S1 pain) possible pars defect, and have sudden drop foot on my right foot,, Im still just having MRI's, EMG's, ect.. ran. Tomorrow I go in for a Milogram and really have no idea what to expect. Im scared to death of the thought of having dyes injected into my back.. Just how painful is a test like this??

    I had a CT myelogram done for cervical problems back in December. I honestly thought it wasn't that bad. I had very little pain from the procedure (I was not drugged in any way). The only thing I did not like was having to lie still for about 4 hours. They want to make sure you do not get a spinal headache, which I have heard is not very pleasant. Try not to worry.

    I had a cervical myelogram done last month and did "Not" get a spinal headache which I am thankful for!!!! Lying still afterwards was not so bad, I had a good rest. The test itself was a little nerve racking but I got through it OK. They inject dye into your lumbar region but they put lanocaine in there first to numb it so you can't feel it as much. Just relax, I think that is the key!!! The test itself took about 1/2hr and then they put me in a Cat Scan machine afterwards for about 15min. It was a bit uncomfortable but you will get through it. I will be thinking about you, you will be fine!!!!
