@dingleberry just curious to what happened to ya a few weeks back when u asked for help about the pain med doc stuff and medical weed.
How did that work out for you??
would like to know for my own personal stuff..
@brienzi my frend PM me. I answered it its in one of these face to face threads. Doctor didnt care. Said he would give me time to pee clean and extended the time to sign the pain contract becuase he was going to give me a month full to pee clean assuming I was honest and quit which I did. No hastles, he needed no proof, no documents, took me at my word. yay.
I still don't know the difference though, that's the funny part
p.s. dont try to explain its not worth your time....

Please don't think people here are scare artists. We had three members lose their PM doctor in the span of a month or two because of MJ and one of them even said their doctor was cool with it and then dismissed them via letter 2 days later. As far as the DEA is concerned, a Sch.1 is a Sch.1 whether it's cocaine, THC, meth, etc. Doctors know this so they are worried about having a patient that has it in their system and then the DEA shows up and wants to know why the doctor is still treating someone who broke the rules. NO ONE here wants someone to lose their doctor so we err on the side of caution. And I'm glad you didn't lose your doctor. I lost one about 4 years ago and the terror I felt is unbelievable. I wouldn't wish it on anyone and I hope we all feel that way.
I have a good bit of experience with quite a few PM docs since I move around for work. I usually just go to the closest doctor from to my house and so on. It is too hard to profile doctors and predict what they will prescribe based on age, race, and 2 minute phone call w/ nurse.
If you don't need opiates or faking back pain, a doctor isn't doing you any favors by writing for them. I think 'compassionate doc' is a code name for a croaker.
I didn't mean it literally to accuse anyone of being a "scare artist" it was more hypothetical and non literal than a personal description of anyone on the board. A broad stroke with a touch of exaggeration. Thanks for the thoughtful message.

BTW in my interpretation "compassionate" means loose in prescribing, god bless them.

It appears I have found a compassionate pain doctor. How compassionate? I will find out in a little over an hour. Am I anxious? Not really. This will have not been the first time I have seen a doctor to discuss pain related matters. This doctor who I have found, is a women, she is sixty years old, and runs her own clinic not far from my home. They specialize in giving pain management patients treatment without any invasive procedures, I went through the run down with the receptionist, she was able to get me in to see the doctor less than 24 hours from when I called which was yesterday. The receptionist also spent quite some time with me on the phone talking in glowing terms about the practice. She told me my doctors notes were not necessary, but to bring my MRI report. (I certainty didn't have time to retrieve my years worth of pain management notes) I am going to bring in ALLOT of prescription bottles written by my current pain doc, mostly for Norco 10/325 #120. Even though the women I spoke with says it is not necessary, I feel it is important to prove I have been on this medication for quite some time now.
So how did I find this doctor? Through research, research and more research. I joined a discussion group who's topic was "compassionate" pain doctors in my city. I happened to catch up with a guy named Bradley, I don't know how the conversation started, but he indicated he found a great doctor who rx'd him Percocet 10/325#120 on the first visit. He indicated he had less notes than me and no records of being on pain meds for a year.
I don't know if this helps anyone, and I will be sure to update how it all goes, but I do know one thing compassionate doctors are out there you just have to find them, and unfortunately it can be just too time consuming for many of us.
Final word, avoid large cattle drive pain clinics if you can that require invasive procedures. This doctors requires none and writes prescriptions, there should be more of them out there, she is independent. I have normally heard nothing but dissapoitment stories regarding these large scale pain clinic operations. Try to find an independent doctor with a small office, someone low key, off the grid, who will do pain medicine. That's what I have found apparently, how else can one explain getting in 19 hours after calling, and having the receptionist talk to me forever about their clinic like she had absolutely nothing else to do. I am trying not to get my hopes up too high, but so far, so good.
Make sure you let him know that you create a massive amount of dingle-berries each day.
Unless I take my pants off its fairly easy to conceal. But thanks for the advice @jimmyfingers

It didn't work out she was too much of a bi itch, really rude, found out she just got her liscence back and was recently disciplined, almost killed someone a few years back, go figure. She was once cool now shes just a mean old hag. I could get allot from her but I do not deal with unkind people so I am sticking with my main man pain managment doctor who I have an incredibly good relationship with, even though he won't rx certain things I am at least ok and treated with respect by him, thats more important to me than being treated like a child and getting what I don't even necessarily need but would help. Still, it is possible to find a compassionate doctor and allot of people on this site would be happy with her, but not me, I don't like being treated like a criminal on the first visit just because she got disciplined. Ill wait a while and try someone else out in a few months and add to this thread how it went and hopefully can help others to find what they need.
