Help! I had a RFA on the c-2,3 nerve. It went horrible, with much pain 10 out of 10. One week later I am in alot of pain still ranging from 6 to 9. I am going through my meds and will run out at this pace. 2 Norcos every 4 hours. I've been on norco for 2 1/2 yrs and have built a tolerance, of course. Sometimes the 10mgs every 4 hours doesn't cut the edge off the pain. I called today and they said I have to wait, tough it out until the appt. The nurse apologized and said since I signed the narcotic agreement I cannot go to my pcp or the er for more/different pain meds. This seems so barbaric and uncompassionate! I am appalled! I am a mom with three young boys to take care of and I am in need of pain management, not tough it out course! What should I do?
