How long did you have to take your pain meds for?

I know this varies from person to person but on average, how long should I expect to be needing them? I am 2 days PO and as soon as they wear off ( usually 6-8 hours after Ive taken them) I start feeling great pain again.For you, when did the pain become bearable to deal without the hard painkillers (percocet, etc...)My other question is, being my day two, I don't think my drains are filling up enough. Is that bad? Last night I had maybe 18 on one and 17 on the other (that's 12 hour period) Sorry for all the questions, this is all so new to me! So glad I've found this community :-)
