Oh, I have. Even, as I understand it, two. My advice is not to panic, so as not to wake up a beast named Psychosomatics (a terrible thing, really) and relieve pain. There are many approaches (one is that over time, the inflammation around it disappears, the hernia becomes not so dangerous, if not aggravated). Mine was anti-scientific, as conservative treatment led to extremely deplorable results. I went to an osteopath who worked with clamps. As a result, the skew of the pelvis went away, I was finally able to step on my foot. A year has passed, nothing hurts me, I go in for sports as before, but I am just very careful with my back. As far as I understand, a hernia may not remind of itself anymore (although I'm still scared to sit for a long time, but here it is still a personal experience).
The bottom line is that everything depends on the type of hernia, individual features, etc. I would advise you to tackle the problems "around" a hernia, such as imbalances in the body, etc. And again, don't panic or make hasty decisions. For four months I could not walk normally, I did not feel my leg for a month. I just needed a good doctor. And don't screw yourself up! Just be smart about the question.
I live with 6 hernias of various genesis. Four - in the cervical region, two - in the lumbar. Of course, this leaves a very strong imprint on the vessels, vessels of the brain, legs, cardiology, and the mobility of the spine. In my experience, twice a year I do prophylaxis with certain medications (injections), massages, sports five times a week (three times - swimming), always with an emphasis on a gentle spine regime, but developing mobility and stretching. The neck hurts and aches every day. Somehow I got used to it and it has no effect on the quality of life. I sleep on a special pillow and mattress (hard). You can live with this and live actively. Dozens of doctors have passed who, in one way or another, promised to remove the hernia. It didn't help me, nothing! I just adapted, prevention ... If for some reason I quit sports and prevention ... I immediately get an acute clinical case, from which, of course, there is a separate way out and this is only with a doctor ... Find your regime, your prevention, your sport ... And live happily! Good luck!
Here's a real life example. A man was hit by a car as a child. The spleen and intervertebral disc in the lower back, closer to the sacrum, were damaged. The ruptured spleen was sutured, but the damage to the intervertebral disc was not diagnosed at all. Over time, the boy began to slouch, why it was not clear. The stoop remained for the rest of his life. Over the years, the man noticed that he could sleep only on his side with his knees tucked in. By the age of 40, he changed the tactile sensitivity of the penis and he stopped enjoying sex, while the erection became very long, and ejaculation stopped coming. He became popular with women, but sex began to weigh him down. He turned to a sexologist, where he was treated for a long time and to no avail. Only computed tomography revealed a herniated disc. After surgical treatment, sexual dysfunction disappeared, and now he sleeps peacefully on his back.
