Well, Ive been taking the Oxycontin 20 mg 1 pill every 12 hours. It aint workin so good. The pain relief is good for about 4 hours, really good, I like this med, no side effects, but the pain comes back in 4 hours. Well, I called my Dr yesterday and left her a message. No call back...again. I know Im a pain in her neck but Im just trying to get as much releif as I can. So I just called and was told she is out of the office until Monday, July 1st. Thats it.....no advice....nothing. Is this normal? I dont like being just left to suffer like this. I have scheduled an appointment with my surgeon for July 15th. I gotta do something, I cant live like this much longer. Once I see the surgeon, will he take over my pain management until surgery. I am really not satisfied with my present Dr. This is like the 5th different med she has had me on and it always takes her over 3 days to call me back.
