Hi
I had gone through the question and understand your concern.
See , as you are suffering from severe pain , then you should take a pain killer that is quite effective against such kind of pain and its effect should last long.
If i were your treating doctor , i would have prescribed you either voveran-sr , or delpodol-p(i.e. combination of tramadol and paracetamol).
I hope this information helps.
Wish you good health.
