I have just switched to a pain clinic as it was a over a 2 hour drive to get a script from my Ortho pedic surgeon so he recommended that I go to a pain clinic for my pain management. I asked the Dr to switch me from oxycodone 10 mg of which I tool 2 every morning and 1 at night before bed. I was taking Norco 10/325 2 taken in the morning and 1 at night just like I took the oxy..My problem is they are not controlling my pain well enough. I have never been to a pain clinic before so I don't know how it works or what I am allowed to do so I was wondering if I went back before my apt which is not for 3 1/2 weeks as I was just there for the first time like 2 days ago. Does anyone know if they will allow me to come in before my apt to adjust my meds or do I need to wait. I am suffering a lot and I have to work in and outside of the home. I really didn't want to start attending a pain clinc and have the stigma attached to me and to looked at the every dr office and emergency rooms as a drug seeker. Maybe it really is not like that maybe it is just a fear that is unfounded. Please forgive me if I am wrong about the stigma connected with pain clinic patients. I hope and pray I am wrong. Will I be able to return before it is my appt. thanks to anyone who can help me in anyway. God Bless you and help you with your pain.. I now after this latest surgery have a 5 lumbar vertebrae fussed together and have screws and plate for stabilization of my spine. I would like to not take pain meds at all but I don't know if or when that will happen. thanks for any answer or info you can give me from your own experience. Janet
