Default New member - L3 to S1

My signature says most of it.

The prospect of ADR has given me hope, but without this website I wouldn't have had direction. I am very grateful we have this resource. I joined and donated... after all, this forum has been worth more than many doctors visits!

I'm seeing a provider next week to request current imaging. If it comes out similar to my last set, I should be a candidate for three level ADR. A month ago I was depressed as to the prospects of being affected by DDD the remainder of my life... now I am hopeful and excited to proceed.

Thank you,
Rob
