What can be done to relieve my pain?  What can we do if the pain medications don’t work?  What side effects may occur with the pain medications?  What can be done to prevent or manage these side effects?  What side effects should I report to you?  Will I become addicted to the pain medication?  What other options do I have for pain control?
