Im going through this too, after almost 9 years with the same pill pusher it's time to move on. He's an internist and I need a pain manager. I've found a pain management doctor on the NJ DHSS registry and I keep telling my lawyer to make the insurance co. send me there. I have to find a doctor soon before I run out of pills. My old one wont see me anymore (long story). I take alot of Roxicodone (90mg every 3 hours) Exalgo & Lyrica and I have enough to hold me for a while but they better hurry up! Nobody does anything quick unless there's $$$ involved. I'll call the lawyers again tomorrow. What a pain in the back, leg, hip, and ass.
