Hi! I was sent home with oxycodone 5mg tabs #100 to take 1 to 3 every 4 to 6 hours. Also, Oxycontin 10mg #25, 1 tab twice a day for 10 days, then 1 tab at bedtime for 5 days. Needless to say, I have been taking 3 tabs every 4 hours, (of the 5mg tabs) I am thinking about cutting down to 2 tabs every 5 hours or something like this either tomorrow or the next day.
The resident orthopedic surgeon on my case wrote the rxs. His intention would seem to be for me to be off these in 15 days. I dont think that is going to happen. It will happen when I heal significantly that the pain diminishes.
I am not sure what you had done, but 8 & 1/2 hours! :eek: I dont think what you got, 5mg percs would do it for me.

Take care of yourself and ask for what you deserve if you need it.
