Hey, Mike!  If I remember right aren't you going to have a discogram done before your surgery?  When is that scheduled for?
DDD, osteoarthritis, facet syndrome, fusion surgeries C-5/7 & L-4/5 both in 2006, torn meniscus surgeries left knee 2000 & 2002, buldging disc L-2/3

Hello Jag, yep! It will be this next Wed...and they said for me to bring a driver...yippee! That means that they are going to sedate me. I told the nurse that called that if they did not...WOLRD WAR III would break out there...and that I was not kidding at DR is EVER ..going to do that to me again. My blood boils from the last time....and trust me no one will want to mess with me if that happens again. Oh sorry....I got a little carried away there! :)

Now Jag I just posted something on one of your sites, but I can remember which one. Didn't you just have an epidural done? These meds have really messed me up here, and I will be glad to get off of them after the surgery.

Thank you for checking on me though, and Im so glad we do that for all the members here.

they will sedate you for this, but then they wake you up to see if they can recreate or find your pain..
but hopefull the versed will make you forget, hope it goes good for you.

Me too Chartreux! I had such a tough time with the last epidural, and told the nurse about I will have to wait and see. No matter what, I will need it done, so I will just have to struggle through it. Thank you all cor your concern...its wonderful to have a support group here! :)
