All,
ABC is doing a special on back pain and it's treatments that will air May 22 - 24th on World News Tonight. They are filming my ADR surgery and interviewing me for a segment. I'm going to try to mention ADR Support. You guys have been the best!

Tricia

Tricia, thanks for the mention! I can't imagine how intense that would be -- knowing that your innards will be exposed to the world, while at the same time being so excited that you'll be getting a treatment that will hopefully get you your life back! That's a big deal!

Don't forget about the other resources on "other site" too regarding recovery:

Good luck....

The camera crew left my apartment a little while ago. I think/hope the interview went well. I mentioned ADR Support, but don't know if it will make it on the air. :0) It was kinda embarrasing talking about myself like that.....They took a lot of shots of me walking around with my cane... I'm just praying they don't show my big butt on national television! lol.... I'll let you know when I know the exact date my part will air. The producer from ABC was very informed and seemed to know a lot about back pain and all the treatments, which was suprising. It sounds like they've done a lot of reasearch so I think the peice should be interesting. I'm trying to find out what the other segments focus on too.
Take Care,
T - 7 days....
