If there is a question about your blood count or platelets then your doctor will need to do soem preliminary blood work and if there are abnorm,alities then they need to be checked out by a hematologist or your internist.

It is up to your physician to perform routine lab work prior to performing your surgery.  Hopefully your physician has requested this and you will get the answer to your question.
