I insisted on MRI with contrast and the radiologist interpretation states I have a herniated disc at L4-L5. Unclear if this is residual or a recurrence.

I am open to a revision discectomy but am curious as to why I reherniated so quickly (9 days). The onset of pain was slow and gradual, no acute injury experienced.

I’m 40 y/o, non-smoker, non-diabetic, overweight but not obese. I do have an acquired leg length discrepancy due to advanced arthritis in right knee.

If there is a possibile underlying cause for the herniations, makes sense to address that prior to revision.

Any rule outs suggestions before proceeding with revision?
