    I understand the fear of asking for something for pain...it is really hard to do that the first time. I would just ask him what he suggests you take for the pain you are experiencing. I asked my uro/gyno and he didn't believe in pain meds so then I had to go to my PCP. My PCP was very understanding and didn't have a problem writing a script for pain meds. I started with what ever he wanted me to try and then we have gradually gone to stronger meds as the time has gone on.
    I am not sure that I have been very helpful or not, but just be honest about the pain and the amount of pain you are in...
    I think that it is sad that those of us that are in real pain are so scared to talk to DR.s about pain meds because we are scared to look like a drug seeker.
    Good luck,
    Kirsten

    Pain Meds?

    How did you breach the subject of pain meds? I have a uro/gyn do you think I should make a apt with a uro? I just don;t want them to think I am dependant or to become dependant....
