It sounds, from your description of your pain doc, that it doesn't really matter what you ask for, he wouldn't give it to you. Sounds to me like you need a new doctor, one that actually cares about your comfort and well being. Maybe while you're dealing with the old doc, put feelers out for a new doc. Ask friends, family, other docs, nurses ... and until you find another doc, deal with the one you have. I once told my doc that my pain was so bad that if that kind of pain was all I had yo look forward to, I'd rather be dead. Was quite effective.
It sounds like you are in the same situation my husband gets into with surgeries. Since he has a pain mmanagement doctor the surgeon can't becasue of the contract you signed with your pain doctor prescribe your pain meds. In this case you need to contact your pain doctor & tell them you have had knee replacement surgery & need more pain meds to get you through this. If the meds prescribed for you fibromyalgia are not working there are other meds that help with this pain. The one I use is Lyrica, but there is Savella, Cymbalta, & gabepentin to name a few. I would try asking about about some of these alternative meds that help with the fibro pain, but you must tell them also about your knee surgery. My best to you...
