Regis has PF !!

Posted by BrianG on 8/06/02 at 22:40 (091800)

What, no one saw Regis and Kelly this morning. During his monologue, Regis was telling everyone how he had gone to his favorite doctor (heart) yeaterday. This doc told Regis he would get all his pain's taken care of. In a short amount of time, Regis was set up with 3 different specialists. Must be nice.

He said he had pain in one foot, and it looked like his arch had fallen. Anyways, they got him in for some films and an exam. Supposedly he has PF and fibroma's, but he said it didn't hurt to bad. I've heard Regis talk about tennis, he loves it, and I doubt he'll be able to give it up. If he's not careful, he could end up really hurting, just like the rest of us.

Not that I want to see anyone in pain, but he would probably be a good celebrity spokesperson!!! :*) C'mon Regis, run on those feet! Get them all inflamed!

I'm in a hurry and can't answer many posts today but just can't leave this one alone! At last, someone who could call attention to PF! I like Regis and don't want to see him suffer but a little suffering might be beneficial to us all. I don't watch his show but it will be interesting to hear if he continues to talk about it.

I don't watch his show either, but I did this morning just to see if he mentioned PF, well...I didn't hear anything about it. Gee, we sure could use a high profile spokesperson, there certainly needs to be more attention brought towards this condition.

Happy trails....

I watched the 1st half of the show today. He actually did mention his feet, but just for a second. He is going to get orthotics. So, he must have a pretty good case! Run, Regis, RUN!!!!! :*)

I wonder what kind of orthotics someone with that kind of money to spend, could get? I'll bet they are pretty terrific and made by someone who really knows his stuff. Maybe an entire staff of people that really know their stuff! I sure hope they help him.

We can hope that he may choose to draw attention to his problem on the air, and that may reap benefits for all of us!

Thanks for letting us know, Brian.

Caught any big fish lately?

Is there any merit to the idea of writing to him to encourage him to speak up?

Oh sure there is Nancy, I'm not certain he would ever read the letter...but its worth a try anyway. Maybe we could all write.

I'm not sure that writing to him right now would be the best thing to do. He has 3 or 4 ailments going on, and so far, his PF is the least of his worries. Doesn't it always start out like that!!!

I did catch some NICE small mouth bass on Lake Champlain a couple weeks ago. From 2.0 - 3.5 pounds. My friend caught a corker, that was about 4 and quarter. That is big for a smallie. And they fight like real warriors!. Next to Bluefish, I believe smallies have the most strength. It was a fun weekend, followed up by a week of rehab on the couch :*(

PS: And they were all released, to fight another day.

Necee--post his show's email & we can all mail him! Maybe they'll have a dr. on for advisement on the PF matter.

Regis Philbin, well known talk show host in NYC, in the AM, on NBC. He was also the host of the Millionaire Game, very popular all last year. Or were you just kidding me? :*)
