Okay Let me First Reply to your Message as someone who is basically in the same predicament, They took you off of Soma's,because they dtated their to addictive, But they Write you Prescriptions for Oxycodone, and Fentanyl patches. That makes no sense what so ever, since Soma is a muscle relaxer with a little bit of Codeine in it, Which in comparison is nothing compared to Fentanyl or Oxycodone.

And as far as your Ultram/ Ultracet/ or Darvacet, they might have taken you off of it do to the fact that their is a lawsuit out, that anyone who has been Taking any medicines with DARVON in them, and now have certain things wrong with you, have a Family Member look up your Ailment's online, and if you have something wrong with you that the Medication Darvon, might have caused, your entitled, so call a Lawyer, and find out your rights.,How long have you been on these meds? if you have been on them for over a couple years, than you can call the DR and complain, and tell them the Medicine is so weak, that you feel like it isn't working at all, and you feel sick,9 Feverish, Cold Sweats, Diahrea, and a little vomiting, these are signs of withdrawal, From not having enough Medication, that you are used too). You can tell the DR that You have been taking Aspirin to alleviate the pain along with the other Med's, the DR had Written you.
And I just realized now that this Dr who changed your Prescriptions isn't your regular Doctor, Call or just show up at your original DR's Office, the one who is out Sick. I' am pretty sure if you tell her how lousy you have been feeling, and tell her , how this other DR changed your Medicine, and cut you down a lot, Your DR will most likely rectify the situation, just remember to tell her about the fever,cold sweats n chills, and some Diarrhea So if you have a Descent DR He or She Will Realize that they made a poor mistake,by switching your meds. These DR like to play GOD. I have been on both Meds and I was on the 50mg of Fentanyl, personally for me, the Roxicodone 30 mg pill worked the best, plus i didn't have to wait 8-12 hours for the Fentanyl to hit me, and didn't have to keep worrying about the patch falling off, all the Time.One Pain Medicine that works really good is Roxicodone 30 mg. This will Sure Help.
But as far as asking your Primary care DR for Pain Meds , the answer will most likely be NO! Since people have abused these drugs so bad, it has put a strain on people like ourselves that are truly hurt.Your Primary Care DR will tell you to go to see a Pain Management Doctor, and if your not seeing one, this would be the best bet. They set you up with all sorts of Physical therapy, an Massages and many other things.Just tell your Dr whom your getting your Pain Meds from now, and that you were recommended by a family member to see a Pain Management Dr, since your not getting the proper amount of Medication and Treatment at your current DR.
Good Luck And God Bless, I have been thru several surgery's. so I know how bad things can be, and I also have Anxiety Disorders, and Depression, the Pain Management people might be able to help.
I hope I was Helpful, God Bless, and Good Luck.
