What is your dosing schedule on the oxycodone? Is it every 4 hours? Every 6?
If you don't get a call back tomorrow, you might next time ask when you can expect to hear back from the doctor.. Some doctor's offices don't return phone calls at all, and yours might be one of them.
The few times that I have called my PM for something, I have either gone in, or they put him on the phone when I do call. They also know that I don't call unless something is seriously wrong, so that has a lot to do with it.
Is this a new PM or one that you have been seeing awhile now?
If you don't get a call back, make an appointment and discuss it face to face with him.
