When a disc reherniates after a microdiscectomy it seems like the standard options are either fusion, a revision microdiscectomy and less commonly, a disc replacement.
I'm looking to find out if anyone has decided to forgo further surgery. If so, what have you done to address your condition, and how successful have you been?
I think such examples (if they exist) could be interesting for a lot of people visiting these forums!
Easter 2013 : Onset of sciatic pain.
Sep 2016 : L5-S1 minimally invasive microdiscectomy. Pain returns in full 10 days after surgery.
Oct 2016 : MRI rules out a re-herniation.
Oct 2016 : ESI (cortisone and nerve block). Increased Sciatic Pain from 2 days afterwards.
