  • doctors and pain meds

    My urologist that treated me many years ago refused to give me any pain meds when I went back after a long time. I was disgusted. My primary said a lot of specialists can just "decide" that they are not going to treat pain and that he did not have this privilege. He heard me out and agreed to prescribe Vicodin. I have to sign a pain contract and he will monitor it. He is not giving me a lot. There are times when I just have to have something in order to continue with my day. I think the pain management of this illness is disgusting. I use all of the other holistic things and have tried the vaginal valium (to no avail), but there are times when pain meds are needed in my opinion.

      It's good that you have a primary care doctor who knows you and will help with your pain. Sometimes doctors are very cautious about prescribing pain meds --- and sometimes they can be in trouble with their licencing agencies for prescribing what they consider "too many" pain meds. It's a sad situation that is made worse by people who are drug seekers and who don't need help with pain.

        I know for various pain that I have had (including my back pain that I am having now) he offered to give me pain meds but I told them that I had a contract with a PM doctor and couldn't get anything from him (he gave me some muscle relaxers instead which I think helped some and told me that anytime that I want to have him prescribe me the pain meds he will).
        A few weeks ago I went to another PM doctor (same group but closer to home) and she actually increased the amount that I had a long time ago as she said that she rather have me have too many than not enough and call in for a early refill. She said if I don't use them all then just get it refill when needed. This month, however I am finding that I am using them pretty much the way she prescribe them to me because of my back. Oh well, hopefully soon I can get back to normal and do the things I need to do instead of being in bed.
