This obsession has become so common that Dr. Pope has come up with a term for it: Adonis Complex. What fuels it, he says, are the ridiculously outsized bodies purveyed by Hollywood, magazine covers, and even action-toy manufacturers (just check out the size of . Joe these days). "One of the biggest lies being handed to American men today is that you can somehow attain by natural means the huge shoulders and pectorals of the biggest men in the magazines," says Dr. Pope. "Generations of young men are working hard in the gym and wondering what on earth they're doing wrong. They don't realize that the 'hypermale' look that's so prevalent these days is essentially unattainable without steroids."
A couple thoughts, and let me start by saying I am fairly new to spine issues. I have an L5-S1 large bulging disc pressing on the right Sciatic Nerve. Significant pain for one month. Probably not the person to give advice (some posters have earned a PhD in pain not by choice) but reading your post made me want to offer what I have found. I hope you find an answer, you deserve it. 1. Medical advice needs to come from multiple sources so if you have yet to seek alternative opinions probably best to do that now. 2. I personally believe the cycle of pain requires an element of finding your means to break it. I found the best, all be it hard thing to do was to push myself out for a walk and also to go to work. I believe there is a tough balance with this that requires hearing the medical advice to know when to not push it but also knowing if you don't push a bit then the pain owns us. 3. At 7 months, I can't help but think the conservative approach isn't working and you should be talking to a surgeon. Again, I hope you find an answer.
