comment How to conclude long “whether … or” clauses
Ah, but now you've got two cases - one second option, or a range of secondary options. And given the fact that the range potentially exists, as you have pointed out, it's better to leave further explication to subsequent sentences as needed or else risk getting messy. If it is just one explicit second option that you want to highlight, I'd have no qualms with throwing the additional "..., or ..." on the end.
