Brief Answer:
You can have half the pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain after a surgery is often severe and needs an opioid to control it. In addition to meloxicam you can have half or full pill of hydrocodone as per your need. Taking the pill for a few days will not cause any long term side effects or a withdrawal.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
