So I let sissy lasher know, and then called the nurse's station.
Well, he didn't tell them he had any problems with demerol, but he was also at about a 10 on the pain scale when he went in. Either way, she's going to let his doctor know so they can look at getting him onto something less reactive. I brought up that stadol seemed to be particularly strong on him, but that he didn't hallucinate.
I figure, they can reduce dosage some, since narcotics don't really fix nerve pain anyway, they just dull the edge and relax you.
She said they would probably try morphine, since that's the other more common one for heavy pain.
