    Pain meds after finger amputation

    Hello everyone. I had an accident at work on the 27th taking the tip of my index finger and about half of my middle finger. The ER doctor I went to that day prescribed me oxycodone. I had my first real appointment today with my doctor. They cut the bandage off I've had on since it happened. Asked me my pain levels and at the time it was about an 8. When I was finished with everything they set me another appointment for Friday, but didn't give me any prescription for my pain. The town I went to for my appointment has a bad problem with prescription drugs so I didn't want to ask for more in fear of them thinking I was an addict. I have a few left from the first script so I hope they last. Why wouldn't they give me anything for my pain, when it's obvious I am hurting
