  • pain meds

    I just had a cystoscopy with hydro and my doctor prescribed me 80 percocets. I still have over 60 left and its been a month but I'm fearful if I run out. She also gave me ultram, but they barely work.

    Do most of the patients on here who get vicodin/percocet go to a pain clinic? Or does your uro prescribe them?
    I have been to a pain clinic before when i had pancreatitis. I have also have 4 nerve blocks, 12 weeks of instillations, tried many meds for all my conditions and also PT. While my symptoms get better, my pain is everlasting I have had pelvic pain for 8 years now and I also have fibromyalgia and I know that can make it worse.

    Also, do you need a referral to a pain dr. I just dont want them to think I'm some 20 year old pill pooper who is coming there to get drugs. I don't have a relationship with my mom because she is addicted to oxycotin and percocets and I've seen what addiction can do to someone when they dont take it for pain; they take it to get high. And I never want to live that way.

    If 20 pain pills lasted you a month, you may have enough at least for the present. Whether you need a referral to a pain management physician depends on your insurance and on the pm physician. You can always call and ask.

      Thanks I will try and call where I see my gyn at. She also sees me for IC and that is where I got diagnosed. She works with a pain management team but they like to do nerve blocks. They say it helps with pain? I had 3 of them in the past and also trigger point injections. Donna, have you ever heard this before?
