Hi All. Well I was 9 weeks post of from a microdiscectomy when a teenager slammed into the back of me going 50mph. I just got my MRI back last week and it showed a reherniation. I had a nerve block the other day, but I still have some big time back pain (not as much leg pain thankfully) after busy days or after holding something thats not even that heavy (such as my friend's 6 week old baby.) I have yet to have children and I would love to start a family soon (on the verge of 30!!!) but worry about the effects it would have on my back in it's current state. But my question is to you: If you reherniated your disc...did you have the surgery redone? Was it a good choice? What was the recovery time like for the second surgery? What is your back pain like now? I guess I'm kinda on a time fram because I have a lawyer and would be reimbursed for this surgery due to the car accident if I have it soon. I'm so torn. I dont know what to do but I'm just so angry that this happened. Oh and also...what is the chance that more scar tissue will occur and affect the sciatic nerve anyway? Thanks so much! Any suggestions/info would be great.
