I've been taking oxycodone 20mg up to 3 at once a couple times a day. Last time I took was yesterday afternoon and now I need surgery Tuesday and am concerned that my post operative pain won't be controlled adequately. Dr gave me oxy 5mg #30 only. If I take nothing for the next 2 days, will I be okay? I'm terrified my pain will be off the charts. Any advise would be appreciated. The 20mg I was getting from a friend so I can't tell dr Any other tips on how to get this flushed out now so I won't be tolerant? Surgery Tuesday. Today's Sunday. Thanks!

No, your tolerance isn't going to change that fast. The best thing to do would be to just come clean with your doctor.

On top of the post surgery pain, if you drop to that low of a dosage, you're also going to be tacking on withdrawals and rebound pain.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Does anyone else have any advice or ideas?
