Hey guys, new to the sight. Have had severe pain in left leg for 6 months. My doctor informed me today that I can have multi level fusion surgery or live with the pain :( He also prescribed lyrica today. I have a lot of bad things about this drug. If anyone out there can help me I would appreciate it. I am seriously thinking about having the surgery and not taking lyrica for the pain. I have had epidurals, chipopratic and acupuncture.
