So, I now have lidaderm patches. Has ne1 heard of them and or used them for the leg pain/nerve pain. Do they work?? Are they dangerous? Do they help. I was thinking of asking for fetanol patches would that be a good idea. I wake in the middle of the of the nite actually screaming in pain. I still have complete numbness in my right leg from my hip almost down to the middle of my calf. please give me some opinions people, thanks again for everything. Also I was thinking of asking for oxycontin for after my surgery. What kind of meds do they give you after a 2 level fusion.
