Yeah, I called my PA's office to report that this morning, they took all day to think about it, then called back at 5 and said, "That's the best we can give you, if you don't like it, try alternating between acetaminophen and ibuprofen"(????)
At present I have gone for option 3, "swearing copiously and weeping when forced by necessity out of complete immobility". I don't even have any ibuprofen in the house, having been advised to limit my consumption thereof significantly now that I'm down a kidney, and taking acetaminophen for this level of pain is like trying to clean a car with a toothbrush.
As a bonus, having been switched from tramadol (which seemed to have stopped working) to hydrocodone (which never worked) yesterday, I spent last night alternately having lurid nightmares and lying awake feeling really, really weird, which I suspect but cannot prove was a minor-league withdrawal reaction. So I'm not switching back to that.
