Hello all, I am back a little at a time anyway. A warning for anyone asked to have a myelogram which is what I asked to do . I made the appt. I was taken back to a surgery room, an IV was put in my hand. In the surgery room, I was asked to roll onto my stomach, at this time I figured they would give me something to relax me with, otherwise why the IV, was I ever wrong, they rubbed alcohol on my back told me to be not told me not to move, they then shot a 12 inch needle in my back until they found the bad nerve, then shot dye into my back took pictures for contrast and it was over. I asked the doc, why give me an IV if they werent going to use it to help with the pain, to which he answered, since I hadnt yelled out or moved he quessed I was ok.
I was not, never again, I will research everything anyone does to me from now on.
But I made it, I have the cd and I go back on the 18th and find out whats going on, and get it fixed.
So thanks one and all for hanging in there with me.
