I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but spine specialists RARELY prescribe pain meds. They leave that up to the pain specialists or your primary care physician (PCP). They are interested in treating you surgically and that's about it. So, if I were you, I wouldn't wait until the 23 to try to get some pain relief. Call your PCP.
Rohrer is correct. Do not wait for the spine doctor to prescribe you pain meds. Either go to pain management or your PCP
