I have been seeing this doctor since 2004 and everything was fine until the last year or so. I have a implanted pain pump and get some oral medication for break through pain. In January I asked for a increase in my pump since I was experiencing increased pain. I was denied a increase along with my oral medication reduced. Today I was told that he would not give any more oral medication. So where is this doctor's hippocratic oath of doing no harm? My increased pain is doing me harm and he doesn't want to help me.
