1 patient evaluation for Myelogram (myelography)

Jun 11, 2011 (Started Jul 01, 2007)

  • Effectiveness
    None (for pain in lower back)
  • Side effects
    Mild (localized muscle ache)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: If I ever have another myelogram, and I've had two, I will ask to be sedated before the procedure. With both myelograms I only had local anesthetic, and it was a very painful experience. During the second myelogram, I was lucky enough to be the guinea pig for a student who couldn't place the dye correctly because of my hardware at L4/5, so she just dug around in my spine until the actual doctor took over. Wow.
