What hasn’t faded is the pain. It has gotten worse. Although I would not call it excruciating, it has steadily built over the past week. I felt worse today than ever.
So I returned to our primary care physician for the follow-up visit and he prescribed Neurontin (or actually its generic equivalent, gabapentin) to be taken three times a day for the next ten days. I have the smallest size, 100 milligrams. The doc told me it comes in much larger sizes as well, but we’ll start with those and hope they do the trick.
I do not like taking pills in general. I’m ready for this stuff to be over.
Speaking of general and over, Hugo Chavez died this afternoon.
Oops, he was only a colonel, not a general. But that was apparently high enough in the scheme of things to become the
Congressman José Serrano (D-NY) of the Bronx sang Chavez’s praises here.
Some people never learn.
If this post makes no sense, it’s probably the gabapentin talking.
