Back pain during and after sitting


I am 25 years old and have been experiencing a lot of pain and discomfort in my lower back since late last year.

I was diagnosed with a cobb 8º deviation to the right and diffuse symmetrical bulging disc in L3-L4, L4-L5 L5-S1 (without radiculopathies).

Currently I do pilates, gym, water aerobics and electrotherapy, but I still can't sit for more than 30/60 minutes without feeling discomfort.

I've tried several chairs with lumbar support, ergonomic but nothing helps. I'm always visiting several orthopedic doctors but I can never get over it. Is it possible to reverse this, and go back to work in the office again? anyone can suggest something, please?

I am so much against back surgery unless absolutely necessary due to the fact that so many end up with worse problems. I had quite a bit of lower back pain and then I didn't. So, I'm hoping yours went away. Stretching is my saving grace. Ho are you now?
