So it's been almost 6weeks since Winston's decompression surgery for CM & SM and he's doing ok. Surgery wounds have healed nicely. He had a recheck with the regular neurologist yesterday & I explained to her that he's still scratching his head & rubbing his head in the floor periodically. She did say its not even 6 weeks & it is going to take a long time for him to feel a lot better. She also said she would like to try using Amantadine on him. It's a anti flu drug that they've used with some success. She is going to consult the neurosurgeon & let me know if we can start that. He's still on 100mg of Gabapentin 3X a day along with Tramadol 3X a day & omeprazole once a day. I was wondering if any of you have used Amantadine?
