    Hi mimm. Sorry to hear this has happened.

    What was your initial diagnosis? Was it slipped disc?

    Did they perform a discectomy? And has it now slipped again?

    There is very little information in your post. What were you suffering from and what surgery did you have done? Did the surgeon give you any indication of a recovery time? Have you been bending lifting or twisting? Maybe you over did something??
