Shawn here with a question for you.
I am gearing up for a 4 level PLIF. And ever since my discogram two months ago my pain has doubled. My pain that was 90% in my lower back and 10% in my leg, is now 50 & 50 now with the pain in my left leg.
My first question is, do discograms injure the discs further?
I know that the test itself was horrible to go through. And the acute side of it was bad for a few days but was not told that there was any chance of it making my pain worse for good.
Can any of you fill me in here?
Thanks in advance.
