I received the DVD on Saturday and watched it with hubby on Sunday. It was very enlightening and encouraging to watch and listen to others who have suffered for years and eventually had ADR surgery and were able to resume some normalcy in their lives.

Prior to finding this support forum and listening to only one orthopedic's negative opinion of ADR, we felt like it was a procedure that shouldn't dare be ventured. After tons of reading and research, checking with other doctors and getting fed up with living with pain 24/7, we've turned the corner and now feel like there's light at the end of the tunnel. Though the problem is with my husband's back, I say "we" because his pain and limitations have truly has affected the entire family.

Watching the DVD stoked the flames of hope that we have had burning for some time now. Kudos to you for putting this together and doing such a superb job!!! I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering ADR.
