```Try this:

pre <- c(1,2,3,4,5)
post <- c(2,5,7,2,3)

plot( 1:2, range(pre,post), type='n', xlab='', ylab='CRP (mg/dl)', xaxt='n')
segments(1,pre,2,post)
axis(1, at=1:2, labels=c('Pre','Post'))

### or one way to label the lines

par(mar=c(5,4,4,4)+0.1)

plot( 1:2, range(pre,post), type='n', xlab='', ylab='CRP (mg/dl)', xaxt='n')
segments(1,pre,2,post)
axis(1, at=1:2, labels=c('Pre','Post'))

min=min(post), max=max(post))

mtext( 1:5, side=4, at=tmp.y, line=2, las=1 )

hope this helps,
