= ( Yeah, I know what you mean. I called today - the emergency line to my PCP and they gave me Ultram on top of the Tylenol 3, and so far so good. I hate having to take pain meds, but I have to with a 17 month old and a 2 month old! I have to be able to take care of them all day. = (

Oh! That's terrible.

I don't know what to ask for, but I would just let the doc know that I'm still in a lot of pain & the meds he prescribed aren't cutting it. I was always anxious about asking for more meds or stronger meds thinking they'd think I'm an addict, or was going to sell them or something, but they've never had a problem with it at all. You don't look like someone they'd be concerned about, either. =)

Feel better soon!

I can empathize with you. I am having back surgery in April. I am barely making on a daily basis because of the pain.

I broke my tailbone. I had to go to the doctor and get x rays and everything!

This has made my anxiety even worse because I am in a lot of pain and I'm walking funny.

Here's the deal..My doctor prescribed Tylenol 3, but it's not doing much for the pain. What should I ask for when I call on Monday? This is day 2 of tylenol 3 and it's barely even denting the surface of the pain!

=(
