The first 24-72 hours are the worst, but if you were using long-acting oxycodone (oxycontin etc) the withdrawal may be much more protracted.
The success rate of people trying to self-detox is not high. There are a variety of medications that can help, including some non-narcotic meds like Clonidine and drugs to treat the symptoms. See a doctor experienced in treating it. www.asam.org or aaap.Org.
