There are stronger pain relievers than Norco, but you mentioned in another question that you are also using Fentanyl.  Fentanyl is a very potent opioid and I just would not be comfortable suggesting anything else to you as it could potentially be dangerous.  Only your doctor should make that call.  If you're not getting adequate pain relief, tell your doctor.  He may have other options you could try.
