Hello, doctor. Thanks for stopping by the sub.

Question: for a patient that re-herniated within the 3 months post-microdisc L5/S1 when would you recommend a revision procedure? Would it be sooner rather than later so that scar tissue doesn’t complicate the issue or is it 100% dependent on symptoms?

In my case my MRI prior to surgery and post re-hern are identical. Yet symptoms are extremely different.

Thank you for your time and expertise.

Typically how long do protrusions take to be reabsorbed?

And lastly do you agree that most herniated discs feel better or see symptoms plateau after 8-10 weeks?

Thnx again.
