Brief Answer:
depends on the clinical presentation

Detailed Answer:
HI,

Thanks for your query.

If there is a necessity for re exploration , it must be done.

The better person to decide on this would be his neurosurgeon. As clinic status of the pt is also important on to decide about the mode of treatment. If he is well clinically then medical management could be a resort.
