Welcome to the board!
I didn't use oxycontin after having a c-section last year. During the first 2 days in the hospital I used Tylenol 3, and after that I used extra strength Tylenol. I don't even know what's in Tylenol 3, I think it might be codeine. The doctor's and nurses said that they were safe to take while breastfeeding.
Sorry, but I don't know how safe oxycontin is to take while bfing.
I don't know about oxycontin, but after my c-section I was on vicadin, then an insane dosage of Motrin for 2 weeks, colace, an antibiotic for mastitis, etc. I had to begin pumping right away (babies in NiCU). All the dr.'s assured me it was fine. My babies are great--very ahead of the traditional development timetable. I would imagine your dr. knows what he's talking about. You could always call another dr. for a second opinion.
If you plan to nurse for any length of time, maybe pick up a copy of Mother's Milk & Medications by Dr. Thomas Hale! It will be a tremendous help throughout your nursing relationship. Since docs tend to use the PDR and it's not a reliable source for what meds are safe for a nursing mom.
