I noticed this morning that the label on my pre-workout drink says to stop 2 weeks before surgery. I mentioned this to my PS who is not worried because I am otherwise healthy, but I am a nurse who worries about EVERYTHING. I checked my BP, heart rate, and INR this morning, all of which were normal. What are the risks related to surgery and taking pre-workout drinks? I have included a photo of the product label. The last time I used it was on 3/19, and my surgery is scheduled for 3/21. Thanks!
