I just want to know instead of EMLA cream or that spray that just doesn’t seem to work, is it safe to use a pain patch on a graft instead?

I am not sure what pain patch you are referring to.  Some pain patches have non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) within the patch.  This might be a problem.  I suggest that you discuss this with your nephrologist.
