Is disc herniation is related to hypogammaglobulinemia?

Is there any connection between disc bulging/herniation and hypogammaglobulinemia? I am 33yo white female with unspecified hypogammaglobulinemia and had micro-dichotomy done last year at L5-S1. I now have a bulge around the scar tissue causing symptoms once again. I am 235 # and 66.5 , yes considered obese but had lost 25# in the last few months. Now I am gaining weight back bc it is too painful to workout. I also have a history of dm2, htn, hld, bipolar, and allerges.

Hi,

There is no relation between them but my advice to you is to see your neurologist who did the surgery again, you may need to do MRI on your spines.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
