I am scheduling appointment tomorrow for my first appointment with pain management and I have never gone to one of these before can anyone tell what will happen during my first visit just so I know what to exapect? How long is the visit? My surgeon said he’s only allowed to write a certain amount of scripts and I’m at the limit so I have to be referred he said he knows I need the medication so I need to go to pain management. My surgeon is only allowed to write for tramadol or Tylenol 3 and tramadol knocks me out so he switched me to the Tylenol and that barely does anything for the pain so I hate pain meds but I’m at the point that I need something stronger does anyone with ruptured disc know what type of medication they will give for that? Thanks in advance and for listening to me I’m just nervous about this first visit since it’s all a new experience.
