Default Dr. Clavel Patient Union Planning

Hello to all Dr. Clavel's spine patients, This can't be called a re-union since there hasn't been a first union to my knowledge. I am thinking that it would be awesome for all of us to try and have a meet and greet in Barcelona! We have talked about doing it here in the US, but I loved Barcelona and thought it would be so cool to go there instead. It's too early for rates, but I am think at least 3 years out. I don't know about you, but I still have $13,000 in surgery cost to pay off....

1. We would have to coordinate with Yolanda
2. We all have our favorite hotel, so we would not have to stay at the same place, but would have a set time for: meet and greet with Dr. Clavel and Staff, day trips from Barcelona, and a dinner (tapas). The rest of the time would be on our own....

I welcome any input or suggestions.

Kind regards,

Cheryl Stew

Chronic back pain started in 2010 while shrugging weights that a 40 yr. old shouldn't even try.

MRI in 2012 showing L4/L5, L5/S1 herniations and L2/L3 bulge.

L5/S1 taking on new shape, chronic sciatica, etc.

DEXA bone scan performed 5/7/14 showing mild osteopenia.

Surgery performed July 9th, 2014, Dr Clavel, hybrid three level lumbar.

Interesting idea. Not sure we could make it but would be fun if we did.

Default Yolanda loved the idea

It would most likely need to be 2020, because so many of us have surgery to pay off; I know we do. The meet and greet with photo ops will be in the lobby at the hospital. I think the dinner should be at the La Pedrera that evening and a day trip up to Costa Brava, we can be on own on for a few days and meet up for a farewell dinner or luncheon. Just some ideas I'm tossing around right now.
