med help. had acdf Monday

Overall my one level went well. I walked two blocks today. Sleeping is rough and at the 4 hour mark my throat and neck hurt enough I want my pain medication. I really struggled my first day home so surgeon said to uppliment with Advil.

I was given 45 percocet on Tuesday. I have 22 left. Should I call tomorrow for more or wait until Monday. I'm pretty sure I'll run out before Monday but don't feel ready to wean off or slow down yet on my medicatio.Please advise in this narcotic resistant climate we live in now.
