open discectomy L4-L5 6/16/10
well i'm extremely scared of going through a reherniation of my L4-L5. i just had an open discectomy on 6/16/10, it's been only 2 weeks and i feel 100% better than before surgery. i have spondylolisthesis on my L4, L5 and S-1. and my surgeon is certain that i'll reherniate because my back is so unstable but it's a matter of when. i'm almost 17 yrs old and i was totally against having the fusion. i get to go back to him on 8/12 and i'm probably starting physical therapy sometime around there. is there anything that anyone can suggest to prolong my time before reherniating? or did anyone do certain things after surgery to strengthen muscles?
