He immediatly gave me a 6 month refill on Ibu 600's and upped the number I could take. Told me to hydrate out the wazoo for every ounce someone else drank I was to drink atleast 2. He then told me I was never to participate in an event or train again without NSAID drugs. He told me he could never complete 100 miles on a bike, but that I could. He told me I wasnt battling miles I was battling my disease at that point. He even told me that if the Ibu with a lactic acid blocker didnt work to immediatly call me because he'd change the medication and find me something that allowed me to do the race. He's a good doctor, many would have told me it was time to quit with the progression of my disease. Today he actually encouraged me to do the triathlon something I didnt expect.
