He lost his brother from heart failure about 3 years ago, who also had disk issues. He too always recovered with strict conservative treatment.

He leaked a bit and that's it. He was on crate rest for 6 months and I followed dodger list recommendations. He escaped out of his crate once and I wanted to be extra sure he was healed up so I added some extra time. At first he was on pain meds but I gradually weaned him off those. He hasn't had a relapse.
