Coming down the home stretch

Had an appointment with my oncologist today (Dr. Sabiers). Nothing major to report. I'll be (finally) getting my port taken out soon. That's just an outpatient procedure.

Got a prescription for neurontin (gabapentin) to help with the tingly feet. Hopefully that will allow me to take a walk, exercise on the elliptical, etc. Interesting side effects: The most commonly observed adverse events associated with the use of Neurontin in adults, not seen at an equivalent frequency among placebo-treated patients, were dizziness, somnolence, and peripheral edema.

Anyway, all is well.
