Varies. It varies somewhat. You can get better after such a surgery for even 6-12 months. I would certainly let your surgeon know.

I had triple arthodesis with proximal bone graft my doctor put me on oxycodone /acetaminophen 5-325 mg could this meds cause to have hot flashes?

Unlikely . Usually oxycodone does not cause hot flashes, you should check your temperature to make sure you do not have fever and other thing to check will be look for signs of infection like redness and swelling and increased pain at the surgery site. If you notice any of these get in touch with your surgeon. If you do not have much pain you can stop taking the oxycodone also. Hope that helps. Read more...
