Cloe - Just wanted to 100% agree w/ Linda - I would make an appt. This is a completely VALID reason to request additional pain meds. But it's also valid to request additional meds IF your currents meds aren't working.
The immediate concern is getting pain relief for your daughter's wedding (BTW, congrats!). Like I said, I'd make an appt and go in w/ your needs.
But it seems like you are suffering quite a bit, and at 2 Vicodins per day (even the extra strength), you are still at the low end of the spectrum, in terms of pain meds. As Linda said, people still suffer on pain meds (I'm raising my hand high!)...but, nowadays, there are so many meds to try. Both opiate and otherwise. Yes, some have side effects, so it is a "trade off" in some regards. But I'm a firm believer that meds have their place and work for many people. Just my opinion, but I really hate to hear of someone suffering....
Let us know if you have a supportive doc, if you've tried other meds, etc. But I absolutely would encourage you to just explain your pain needs to your doctor...remember, your doctor WORKS for you. (Can you tell I'm passionate about this subject!!). I'll stop, but let us know what happens!
Wishing you well, Tina
