Thank you Dr. One final question. My surgeon and I both feel confident it is a reherniation, albeit with symptoms less severe than the original herniation. Advil does help a lot (2-4 per day). I don’t believe, based on my current symptons, that a second surgery is necessary. Are the odds with this reherniation the same as an initial herniation — that is, the majority tend to resolve themselves over the course of several months? With PT, epidurals and/or OTC medications such as advil.
