One Dr. on this site said that most of his patients were off of their pain meds in 2-3 days post op. I am one week post op and my pain is still severe. In fact, I am about to ask my Dr. for a third refil on Vicodin. Could I be overdoing it? Thanks

Your goal should be "tolerable discomfort" not "pain free." Without knowing your situation or what you had done, you should probably begin to back off the narcotics now.
