Endone

During periods of extreme pain, say a matter 3 to 4 weeks, how much Endone is it safe to take per day or how often?
Over 6 years, I have received cortisone injections into lower back joints for severe arthritis, which has left me pain free for up to 12 months. I have the advantage of not becoming physically addicted, so can stop completely when pain ceases, even after weeks.
However, I now have arthritis in my shoulder joint and will require a shoulder replacement. The nerve was trapped causing an inflammation. The radiologist states the cortisone will only 'start' kicking in after 3 weeks.
I do not drive when on major analgesics.
I have been taking 1 1/2 tablets rather than 1 and sometimes require 2 tablets.
I want to know what the maximum safe dosage is per day.
I am generally reasoably healthy and 64 years of age.
Is there any way to do shoulder surgery without full anaesthetic?
Thank you, XXXXXXX
