Don't know who gave you that info but if Dr. said so, must have
a reason. I was told NO aspirin 7 days prior to surgery & no
herbals 10 days. As for Green Tea, I'd call ofc for explanation.
It's an immune system booster. Should stick w/ caffeine-free
& no tea/food 12 hrs. before admittance. Maybe it's the type of
surgery? Aspirin thins blood & can cause excessive bleeding.
Vitamin E can cause allergy response sometimes. I was given
green tea to sip just hrs. after a procedure. I also had it
12hrs pre-surgery. I'd call ofc. I know Chamomile is OK.

Also no Ibuprofin for a week before, do you have a pre-op physical scheduled? you can bring it up then, or just call your surgeons office. I dont see what drinking green tea would do for adverse reactions, but if your worried about it, definatly call and talk to someone.
