Hello, I too was diagnosed with Carcinoid Center in May of 2017. Mine is located in the liver. I am able to get my sandostatin injections at my hometown hospital. I was given a tube of lidocaine lotion to apply to my injection sites 30-60 min before, I live close so can apply it at home, however, I’m sure they could apply it for you. This made a 100% difference for me! I no longer had the pain or the sore hips for the day following. It is worth a try. Good luck to you.
