possible reherniation 6 years post op

I had a L5 microdiscectomy about 6 years ago when I was 21. For the last two weeks I've been having the same horrible sciatic pain down my legs with the numbness and tingling. I went to the ER and they gave me a steroid pack and pain meds. I have an appointment with a spine specialist Monday and I was wonder if anyone had re herniated a disk so long after surgery and if they needed surgey again. I'd like to forgo surgery as long as i can but last time none of the other methods helped.  you always hear once youve had a problem with something its always easier for it to happen again. Thanks in advance for any of your stories. :)
