You really need to check with the doctor who is doing the procedure.  I recently had two different types of surgery.  One of the surgeons made me stop taking ibuprofen a week before and the other didn't make me stop taking it at all.  I'd suggest calling the doctor's office.  The nurse should be able to answer your question.
