Hi I'm new here so I'll give you some back story. I was in a helicopter crash in 2003 and another in 2005( no I was not the pilot). I served the rest of my time in the military pretty much without incident until 2010 when an injury a the gym pretty much started my downfall medically. I have been in pain management for 4 years through the VA and my doctor has just now seen fit to put me in PT my first appt is February 3rd and my doctor lowered my pain meds from 60 percocet 10/325 to 30 5/325 a month before my first PT appt. So now I am faced with not taking enough medication to cope with my pain on a daily basis or taking enough to make it through the day and running out which is what is about to happen. How do I tell him that this isnt going to work until at least I get started with my therapy. Should I approach him only 18 days since my refill or wait it out and suffer til the end of the month.
