My boyfriend has a discectomy in August 2011, it is now 8 months later and he still has paid and has not recovered. His diet is very strict and he also does physical therapy daily. We did run into some events where he was extremely stressed and was moving furniture and so on right after the surgery. He does not see the relief he thought he would receive coming anytime soon. Can someone provide some advice? Should he is a doctor.. if so what kind or if you know of one in the NYC/NJ area. He does light work outs about 5 times a week but would like to return to his MMA fighting and heavier workouts. Thanks!
