Just a quick note to say hi! Your issue with Hydro may have you worried, but you are in the begginning stages of pain management. You have a multitude of meds available to you. If you dr. doesn't want to give them to you. Then you need to be treated by a Pain Manager. He only deals with the pain. If you have true pain, then find another dr. As long as you have your file, there will be drs. who will be able to help you.
