Short history - 62 year old female - herniation at L5-S1 15 years ago which started causing problems 7 years ago, groin pain, numbness, severe sciatic pain in left leg. Numerous steroid injections over that 7 year period and ultimately had microdiscectomy almost 8 months ago. Very easy recovery and felt great for 7 months, then pain returned about 4 weeks ago with a vengence. Had MRI with contrast 2 days ago but don't know results yet. Am wondering if anyone else has had experience with a reherniation, what was done, and how a second surgery turned out.
