Sorry about recurren: Unfortunately this happens occasionally after back surgery best to get evaluated by the treating surgeon depending on how much time since the last surgery you can try conservative treatment and see if it works it is concerning that you have bladder and bowel symptoms but some times they may improve with conservative treatment as well good luck.
