Label says Oxycodone 5 MG tablet RHO, whatever that last letter group means. Please do NOT take me as an “average” example. Most, if not all, people need prescription pain medication longer than I decided to use it. Went pretty fast from every 4 hours to every 6 hours to 2/3 times a day, mostly afternoon and evening. I was able to use ice on knee during the day to keep pain manageable. I am so curious what if any effect the nerve ablation has / will have on your pain. I’m happy that you are pretty mobile, climbing stairs and moving around. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and let someone else do the cooking this year!

@ellerbracke,I was on the same drug but 10 mg. I think the reason for that was because they had to start out at 2.5, which did nothing to the initial pain. By the time they got to 10 I said it was fine. I will now try to decrease it to 5, but not to worry, I will go by need — I realize every person is different. Last night I slept like a dead person, exhausted from the 3 hour drive and just in general. I look forward to the time when I can cut down on the Oxycodone, but won't push it. #babette, maybe you can slowly taper the meds just by increasing the time between doses? Day 3 here, somewhat more alert, dull ache still there. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
