I need to practice assertiveness skills with doctors--!

Hi Floating

Docs are very paranoid about opiates. My pcp won't give me opiates.(pcp told me to go to this doc) I went to a rheumatologist and he will give me opiates. He's sending me to a pain specialist for cortisone shots. The rheum told me to get my opiates there.At this point I dug in and told him this is getting to complicated. I told him I understand that I need the pain specialist for shots as the rheumatologist doesn't give them). However I told him you've been in charge of the opiates up to know so please stay in charge. I'll go to the pain management guy for the shots but I don't need another specialist to go to for meds!! So the rheumatologist agreed he would be in charge of the medications.
Each doctor want to send you to another doc for this and that. Each has a narrow window of what they do. Very frustrating. Some times you just have to speak up and tell them what you need. Doesn't mean you'll get it but you have better chance. If you're in pain and what you're getting is not sufficient to keep pain under control tell them!! People have a right to proper pain control.
These pcp's today are worthless. Really just in charge of coordinating the specialist merry go round.
