In brief: Just ask!
But do beware that while we're more open to treating chronic pain, there's also been a backlash, more in some urban & rural areas regarding use of narcotics & opioids like Percocet & morphine.
It's important for you to have an open discussion w/your physician. Find out what caused it. Consider physical therapy (again!), acupuncture, etc. Consider non-narcotic pain relief especially if neuropathic.

In brief: Pain specialist
If your new physician is a pain management specialist he/she will understand your plight and offer various approaches to your pain.
Drugs like Percocet are not necessarily the final answer.
