Perhaps there are some ointments or creams that have Lidocaine, Xylocaine or something similar that would help with your radiation-induced pain and skin problems.
Has your mother come to the hospital yet, or is she still at home? She might be able to help out with things at the hospital before you are discharged.
How is it going now? Has there been any reduction in pain level? Are you able to get up and walk around a little?
My mom comes every day in the morning and leaves in the evening. She has been helping me go for walks. I haven't had any pain medicine since 6pm last night. I'm on a normal diet now, though I am choosing my meals wisely.
