Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. fyi avoid typing in your name as this is not a private forum. What is "stand of mass dr"? Your primary care dr does not have to prescribe anything he or she is not in agreement with. It is his or hers license and your dr needs to use best judgment in treating you. Long term oxycodone is not appropriate for migraine or lower back pain. Pain from surgery last month should be addressed by the surgeon who operated on you. The fact that a pain dr approved or recommended a specific medication does not obligate a second physician to prescribe it for you. It sounds like you need a new pain management dr

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
