If i take aleve before surgery, what will happen?

Dear Ask The Doctor:  I am scheduled for surgery on Thursday. I took aleve yesterday and this morning, forgetting that I am to avoid it. Would this postpone my surgery?

Dear Patient:  You have not stated the type of surgery you will be undergoing nor if you are taken any additional medications. As such I am not sure the reason your doctor advised you against taking the medication prior to surgery. It is difficult to say if your surgery will be postponed.
