Pain after back operation

My mom had a back op recently and she is experiencing a lot of pain - she is using ebrufin and other tablets even sleeping tablets to ease the pain, but the moment she gets up to go to the bathroom or just to walk a few steps the pain is unbearable. Please advise what I could do as she does not have a full time caretaker as I am at work during the day, thank you very much
