So my question is, what do I do with the disc image after it's done?
Everything I've read says that I should restore it to a new clean drive and
run chkdsk against it. But I don't know how to restore it to that drive and
am worried I'll be in the same boat as I was when I copied drive to drive.
Anyone have any ideas on how I should proceed? THANK YOU SO
You don't have to write the image back to a drive to use it.  You can mount the image as if it were a drive and pull files from it.  I wouldn't run chkdisk or any other program to try to fix a broken filesystem on the image unless I made a copy of it first.  If you can't mount the filesystem because it is not intact, you can still try to data carve files from it.

See here for details:

I hope that helps.
