    I am very new to this, patience please. I am hopeful I will receive a few responses to my question, but am even ore hopeful I will be able to retrieve it. My question...I have had 12 low back surgeries, over a 5 year period beginning in 1965. New problems more operations and with that came may myleograms. I had to have another of those tests 3 yrs. ao and had a terrrible reaction as the dye couldn't flow freely due to the inordinate amount of scar tissue I have. Once again new unexplained pain and this doctor is willing to look at a myleogram no promises. However, no where can I find any material that will address the topic of sedation prior to this test. I am of the belief there has to be something than can be given by an anesthesiologist, and as this doctor stated should not harm the finding. Then on to the CT scan. I should add an MRI is out as I have an implant in the spine, it is nonactive.
    Thank you so much for your time and patience.

    Re: Myleogram

    I requested, and was given, a little bit of versed via IV for the myelogram. It could only be a little bit as they are not set up to do the myelogram under full sedation. They just found a doctor in the facility who would write the order and a few minutes later they stared the versed. It was a life saver. (Versed is given IV and relaxes you as valium would orally but better and helps you forget any pain you experience).
