Welcome to XXXXXXX thanks for asking

Oxycodone is an opioid drug and in various studies these drugs are found to cause edema of feet. The mechanism is not very clear but patients receiving Opioid drugs may develop edema of feet and ankles as adverse effect.

In some patients with angioneurotic edema the edema is serious.

Thanks, you can ask follow up question if needed.
