In brief: Drink fluids

Maybe ask the doctor if he could get the information with a different less invasive test such as an mri? If you have to get the myelogram ask for the most experienced radiologist.

You should do fine.
Drink plenty of fluids the night before and avoid Aspirin or other anti-coagulation medications. Check out spine-health.Com. Good luck.
