Had a L4/5 discectomy early 1990's then spinal fusion with screws and rods L4/5/S1 in 2000. LONG painful journey fighting back to recovery. That's another story but suffice it to say while it "fixed some problems" it created others.
Recently sciatica in my left leg has returned with a vengeance. Went for MRI and Ortho Consult. They've told me I need a L5/S1 decompression - for the sciatica and a Left L4-5 Redo. Can anyone tell me what is a "Redo?" I can't seem to find any specific info. I'm scheduled for surgery in about three weeks.
