I balled like a baby the day I went home with the pills.
Sheila said I moved better and wasn't as much of a grump on pain management. 
I can't believe I let it get this bad.

I was on a pain management program .
A combo of 3 meds the one that helped most I took 1/2 what they told me to take.
One of my good friends broke his back he died of an overdose.
My Dr praised me for how little I took to keep moving.
She was mad because I didn't wait.
I don't work well in big crowds and small rooms.
Got in the tractor loaded the log deck .
Just rained out with bad T storms.
Had all I could do to get in my truck.
They are 2.5 hours late and it's your fault.

Agreed they were in the wrong, but if you are paying the price then there is nothing wrong with a phone call to the doctor to try and clear the air. Maybe explain to her why it frustrated you so much, not an excuse but she may be slammed to the point she is not seeing the forest through the trees, we have all been there, it's hard when we are on the receiving end, especially when in pain. Just saying.

Id go to the emergency room.

Id explain I was in pain.  Id explain why.  

Id explain that I was looking for relief.  Id expect to wait them out, as long as possible, until I saw a physician.  They are required to treat you.  

Its bad to go digitally on/off on narcotics.  I listen to
@doc henderson on this.  He is the expert.  

Id explain to the ER doctor that Id want an intelligent, reasonable drug reduction program, and a timely and quick referral to the most qualified Dr. or pain specialist in the near 100 miles who is available who could treat  me.

Id report the other doctor to the AMA or whomever oversees possible malicious or negligent retribution of a patient by a physician.  

Id do whatever I could, with a new, caring doctor, to break the cycle of painkiller narcotics, and reduce their use as much as possible.  It wont be easy, may not be possible, but it would require a physician I could respect and trust and one who would respect me as a patient who comes to them for help.    

I would go full Hammer on this.

I know you can only do what you can do, but we are with you.

Best of luck Bruno, sounds rough.

Not that it does anything to help now but whenever I make a doctor appointment I try to get it scheduled as early as possible in the day. I know that as the day goes on they're likely to run into things that put them behind so I prefer to be first in line if possible. Today I scheduled my next PT appointment for 8:00am and it's a 2 hour drive. Getting up early is a small price to pay to walk in at my appointed time with little/no waiting.

I have a friend who was a house painter and fell off a ladder, breaking her back. She can get around but needs pain control. She wants nothing to do with prescription pain meds and instead uses marijuana in various forms. It works for her.

I have a cousin who was a nurse and got hooked on opioids. I don't know the whole story but she was one of those people you never would have expected and it's pretty much turned her life upside down. Thankfully she seems to be coming out the other side now.

I'm making it around running the mill and tractor.
Not sleeping much just can't get comfortable. 
I hope I can sleep a little tonight.
