30mg, hmmm... sounds like either roxicodone or oxycodone. You should talk to your doc about a time-release medicine like: Meridian, Oxycontin, MS-Contin, morphine sulfate SR, Duragesic patches, something that you would only take once or twice a day or inthe case of the Duragesic, every 3 days. ThThat would be considered your "base" dose. Then you would have a few doses per day of a "breakthrough" medicine. The more times a day that you have to dose, the higher your risk for developing an actual addiction.
.
Lastly, the BEST medicine for nerve pain is methadone and the best doc for handling all this is a pain specialist or a pain clinic.
.
Even though your surgery is not that far away, proper control of your pain will help with your recovery and you're going to need a professional to help you taper off that quantity of meds.

Take gentle care,
