Well, it's finally on ... from the time I was first diagnosed in 2006, I have thought the answer lies this way (Schelling's "Venous Pressure Theory" explaining Dawson's Fingers lesion pattern made so much sense), and now it's time to put my neck out, literally.
After playing phone tag with Dake's office since June, I'm finally scheduled to go get scanned on December 7th.
I could have signed up for as soon as early Oct, but between my GF's schedule and my cautious desire to see what happens after the Sept 8 conference, a few more months of experience for the brave early guiniea pigs, etc, I wanted to push it into December.
(OK, and maaaybe part of it is that I live in Minnesota, and wanted to get the most bang for my buck by going to California in the middle of winter ... heh)
Thanks so much to those who have gone before, and to everyone who's helped make this avenue a reality I can explore.
