I had a microdiscectomy on my lower back about 3/4 years ago (L5/S1 I think). I was told that I had 2 discs bulging, one more than the other, they only operated on the disc that was bulging the most. I had instant relief from after the operation. However, for the past few weeks, I am having pain around the location of my scar, and sometimes sciatic pain (not as bad as previously) However, the back pain is worse, hurts when I am walking, sitting, laying down etc. I am going to go to my GP to request an MRI (I don't live in the same area as when I originally had my operation)
My question is, what is the likelihood that my other disc has herniated??
Thanks in advance
