Two years ago I had a cervical laminectomy at C6-C7. Now I am having the same pain down my arm, in my shoulder and behind my scapular. My question is, is it possible to herniate the same disc? According to what I have read, if it was a different disc I would have pain in a different place. Have any of you needed surgery on the same disc more than once? Is this common? and is this
going to keep happening? Any input is greatly appreciated.

Re: Re-Hernieted

A couple various scenarios are possible - a high probability would be bone ridges growing in those same levels that might be pressing on nerve. Bone spurs could have grown in the foramins where the nerve roots are - so it doesn't necessarily need to be disk. Osteophytes can grow in places that were previously cleaned. Sorry you are having problems - you probably need to check back in with the doctor.
