Q:

What are the potential problems following disc surgery in my back?

A:

Most disc surgeries are very successful, however there is a small chance of herniating the disc again. If this happens, you might need a treatment plan for this which could include more surgery. The best defense you have is to follow the exercise program and guidelines for post-surgery care from your surgeon. The exercises will help condition your back to protect you from future issues.
