Any one know what medication I could talk to my doctor about for chronic knee pain?

I would rather prefer a medication that isn't a narcotic? Or are all the non-narcotic medications not strong enough? My doctor said I have a Avulsion Facture on my knee and I will need surgery to fix it and I most likely will have knee pain for the rest of my life. I currently am taken Naproxen and it has no effect on it at all.
Regardless of narcotic or non, I always advise to let the Dr choose, rather than go in with suggestions. They are much more receptive when they have the power.
See an orthopedic surgeon for a consult. There is nothing other then nsaids, tylenol and aspirin. If they aren't working, then see a dr who can help you.
Yes, even if you saw an orthopedic surgeon, you should get a second opinion from another orthopedic surgeon about the surgery and what changes there will be in your pain levels.
