will i have withdrawl symptons, I am also concerned on how well it works for pain
Not sure that I have the complete picture here. Are you stopping the oxycontin and going to another medication or just stopping the oxycontin? If you stop the oxycontin abruptly without tapering and are not changing to another opiate, you will have withdrawals. If you are changing to a different opiate from the oxycontin as long as the conversion is done correctly by the doctor you shouldn't have to suffer any withdrawals.
If you could tell us what medicine you are changing to might be able to answer the question better. Just hit comment and add the info, be happy to answer further then.
