Patient : Mom my had arthroscopic rotator cuff repair last Wednesday. She is still at a pain of 10. Is this normal. He prescribed oxycodone 1-2 tabs 2o mg every 4 hours. She cut down to 1 pill instead of two because she is afraid of running out before appt. She already was taking daily pain meds for neuropathy, knee, and back pain before the surgery. Her pre surgery prescriptions are oxycodone 25 mg every 8 hrs, OxyContin 10 mg 1 tab at noon, and OxyContin 20 mg twice daily. He said to continue with all home meds plus what he prescribed.
