Does your dr's understand the max of pain and treat?

In the state of Tn it is hard to get pain managment, even for cancer patiants, and if we do it is limited to the degree that the meds only last partial months or we suffer all month trying to get moderate pain relief. How do I get my dr to understand that sometimes I need relief during the "sleeping" hours too?

Hi

I don't have an answer BUT I do understand because my doctor is very reluctant to give me anything for pain.

My family thinks I should be on medical marajuana.

There has to be something.

But no my doctor doesn't understand. I tell him over and over and he just sends me to another surgeon.

Sorry
