Re: Herniated Disc- Does it ever fully heal?

Thank you so much for all the insight.

You sound very informed about the matter, are you a health professional or just someone with a lot of personal experience? I know that I eventually need to get a professional opinion about it but I would like to hear what others have to say first.

When it initially happened, my doctor told me that most of the disc should slide back into place and the remnants, the parts pinching the nerve, should dissolve since blood blow to that area will cease. Well, it's been a year and no improvement.

If I have to live the rest of my life with this pain, I can swallow that. I just want the assurance that, barring anything drastic, this is the worst it will get.
