hi I am 25 yo male from U.K.. I have suffered with lower back pain since I was 18. I had surgery on a herniated disc last year however mri scans since have shown the disc did not heal properly and I still have a herniated disc. I have been back to see the surgeon who has insisted for me to wait, he told me they are currently getting positive results with stem cell therapy which they inject the herniated disc and it repairs, no surgery needed.
It's not a problem for me to wait as I am sure I can get through another year with back pain, however I wanted to know if anyone, more likely people in America have had this kind of treatment and is it successful.
Plus is anyone else has a herniated disc and is struggling to exercise I highly highly recommend to go swimming front crawl only. Since I have started it has eased a lot of pain. Not cured it but it definitely helps me get through the day.
