I dont have much to add then whatever has been said, but good luck with the doctor and be truthful, dont keep anything about
your pain back, thats what they're there for. Tell them how it's affected every part of your life, eating, sleeping, social life, work, chores, just plaine daily life. And dont ask for a certain med as that sends up red flags, and hopefully your doctor hasnt been jaded by too many drug seekers as sometimes they are and it can take a while before they will prescribe anything if anything, and dont get offended if they ask for a drug test or prescript
ion history as sometimes thats just what they do. My last doctor had to have ALL of my prescript
ion history and notes from the last doctor that prescribed pain meds.
