it is probobly oxycodone 5/325 thats pretty much the standerd after all most any king of surgery unless the patient is already on a stronger med to begin with but if so it is the same ingrediant as oxycontin only a lower dose and dont dispose of it as he may need it for pain but be careful and hold on to it for him cause he could like the way it makes him fill so give only as prescribed
If you really need to dispose of a controlled medication or any other medication I would contact your local pharmacies and ask them if they have a disposal program. Most areas do have a program, either at a pharmacy or at a police station that will legally dispose of the medication. It is their way of trying to keep them from being distrubuted on the street. I know that the area I live in has a program through the sheriff's office that will take them and give you a voucher for them to show that you have disposed of them. If he has recently had surgery keeping them around for a while might not be a bad idea just in case something happens and he needs them again he would at least have something until he could get back to the doctor. You could also contact the doctor that prescribed them and they may be able to tell you how to dispose of them properly. Hope this was helpful.
