Hi Dr. Then I can only conclude that I have reherniated. Pain has been back for a week and is ever present. Symptoms are not the same as pre-surgery, but pain is increasing. Ibuprofen helps a lot. My surgeon has started me on prednisone. If this is a reherniation, then what options do I have? Is another surgery the only answer? I am very fearful of that as it seems it would take me down the path to fusion at some point.
