no, some script level lydacaine cream would help, but was not prescribed. my uro surgeon knows my pain history well, he at least upped my diludid to compensate for the extra pain, but to be honest, at best, the extra med only slightly dulls the pain. the steady pain is level 5-6 at best, then works back to 7-8 as I near the next dose. plus, on the same level fentanyl patch, that hasn't been upped in over 2 years or so. still 100/mgm every 48 hours, vs. the more standard 72 hour swap.
my ex boss came and visited for an hour this afternoon, that was nice. he's been through everything I have suffered through dating back to early 2008. he knows exactly what I have been dealing with. brought me some special water and a huge cookie, knowing my sweet tooth. that was the highlight of my day..
took a 2 1/2 hour nap, but was in too much pain to sleep even a wink, just laid still on my side and watched an old movie, good mind distraction.
I forced myself later to do something useful to help my wife ,as she's use to me doing most all of the housework, laundry, shopping. Did manage to bring laundry up to date, empty trash bins, get her wine ready for later and as always, got her coffee maker set.
