I have just been patched up after a relatively minor freak accident. Local anaesthesia and a pair of forceps fixed me up but while small the wound is fairly deep and likely to be painful when the anaesthesia wears off. I was discharged two days ago from the same hospital for an unrelated and fairly routine procedure.
ER Doctor: We’re going to give you a prescription for infection and for pain-
Me: I’ve got a recent prescription for ibuprofen and Percocet from my visit the other day.
ER Doctor: And for pain you just keep doing what you were doing for that!
