It is really hard to tell whether or not it will work. Give it a shot for a couple of days and if you are not getting the relief that you deserve, then speak to the doctor about it as soon as possible. Depending on the type of pain, some pain meds work for some people and not so well for others. I know that Vicodin does nothing for the really bad sharp or burning pain that I have. Morphine has given me a quality of life that was unimaginable before. Now after lots of physical therapy we are reducing the amount that I take. It is trial and error with this stuff, but do not hesitate to speak up for yourself. I know you will feel like a drug addict if you ask for more, but what is worse feeling that way or the pain you are experiencing? Do what you can to get yourself comfortable. There are a lot of articles and statistics out there that prove that people who take pain medication (as prescribed) for chronic pain have a really low percentage of becoming psychologically addicted.
You deserve to be pain free!!! Best of luck to ya!
