... I agree with Nightngale. I wish you had posted that about 3 weeks ago when I had my discogram (Ya gotta know anything with the word Disco in it can't be good). My discogram was a breeze. The key truly is having a doc that believes in drugs. My doctor told me there was the "John Wayne" way of doing it, or the gentle way with drugs. He prefered the gentle way and all the... (4 replies)

The MRI showed that my L5/S1 disc was very dehydrated and was bulging and squashing my sciatic nerve, it clearly showed foraminal narrowing.
