    Good luck, I hope this is the solution to your pain problems. The instrument Dr. Bederman uses to help in spine surgeries looks very interesting, it seems like it could really help.

    Be prepared for very aggressive drivers in Southern California. I'm sure it's very different from North Carolina. You might want someone else to drive for you so you don't end up at the appointment in a road rage, lol.

    Hope the trip is not too painful - it sounds like you're going to the "promised land" to me! Looking forward to hearing what Dr. Bederman has to say and to the start of the last leg of your difficult journey. Best of luck Melissa!
