Hello....my name is Jon. I am 37 and I had micro discectomy in February. I reinjured my disc shortly after and I need another surgery. I have been doing pilates to try and prevent my surgery. I don't think it is working. I have gone for three opinions. Everyone says I need to have surgery. Two (neuro surgeons) says micro discectomy again and another (orthopedic spine) says to have a laminectomy to save the save the nerve. Can anyone lend some advice? Thank you
