In pain and very depressed with severe depression

Hi in february I fractured my T5 in 2 places and T6 in one as well as herniated my L5 and L6. I take 4 30 mg oxycodone IR daily for pain. I just had a new MRI and body scan done and the fractures havent healed and have a good deal of pain. My appt was scheduled for tomm and the docs office just called and said that the doc had a health emergency and the office will not be open and the soonest they can see me is next wed. I asked told her on the phone that I was scared to be in more pain than I am without my meds along with withdrawl He has an assistant who can write but he still has to sign them and as I stated he won't be there. What can I do Im scared and have a ton of anxiety and don't know what to do. Ive never had this problem although ive tried to taper myself to see if I could deal with the pain and it was too intense along with the withdrawl. The other problem I have is a year and a half ago I had a serious heart attack in January of January of 2011 and I know as going through WD I get fast irregular heart beat and palpations along with the other WD symptons and it scares the crap out of me, so along with not sleeping and going through WD and the pain it scares me even more to sleep because of the heart problems and going through withdrawl. What can I do so that I dont have to go through this until I can see him next wed which is basically 8 days away.
