freaky - talk to your doc about this. most of us are on SOME form of medication at the time of surgery. it's generally not a problem EXCEPT FOR THE BLOOD THINNERS! the doc will probably have you stop taking them at some point before the surgery.

but every doc does things a little differently, so it's best to ask.
