Laminectomy, nerve issue collapsed recently

My husband had laminectomy back surgery on L4 and L5 a little over a year ago. He was making great progress and only real issue still other then moderate pain is weakness in his right leg and numbness all the time. He recently went down hill and collapsed this past week, had to go to hospital and be admitted. They did a nerve block which helped a bit with pain. The OS says he could need another surgery if this happens again. I imagine it will happen only because he has had this issue for a long time and I think its a ticking time bomb. Has anyone else had this issue and if so can you share your experience good or bad?
