You should ask your surgeon for their advice first. I generally recommend patients take a multivitamin. Vitamin C can certainly help as well.

You can take your multivitamins after surgery, please ask your surgeon if you need to avoid any vitamin that could avoid your surgery, good luck!

Yes, multivitamins and vit c assist in healing properly. I would not take it on the morning of surgery however, as you will have an empty stomach.
