Hi, My name is Jeff I am a 42yr old male, in Dec 2008, I had surgery for a disc herniation L5 S1 felt fine for a few weeks, late Feb 2009 pain came back, went to emergency room they did cat-scan said the same disc had re-herniated, I was wondering is there a alterative treatment or is another surgery the only answer, anyone have any advice? thanks

  • I know that recurrent herniation is fairly common but you will probably need to ask your doc about any alternatives that may be right for you. Good luck and please keep us posted.
