Trust me, tell your doctor. Regardless of the time clean, which will still be very short by the way, there could be some possible issues with certain anesthetics or other medications used before, during and after the surgery.

Don't put your life in danger by being afraid to tell your doctor everything you're taking, it isn't worth the risk.

Why wouldn't you want to let them know that you've been on it?

You should have no issue but best to tell them what your on otherwise they will give you opiate based painkillers when you come round to take home which will have no effect upon you, although from experience even when you tell them they do not make arrangements for you to get anything different!
Just be careful they are giving you no opiate antagonist like subutex which is very unlikely as would bring on instant withdrawal symptoms, certain synthetic opioids can react in this way to opiates but Anesthetics are totally different thing but u never know what they will give u which is why it's a good idea to tell them, if your too worried just ask them what they are giving you before hand.

I have been though numerous surgeries. Always be up front with the doctor's team. I am always earnest on what i take. In April i had major surgery and again in November on the 27th. I'm on suboxone 8mg two time's daily. My suboxone doctor had me stop the suboxone and for two month's put me on Oxycodone 60mg and when i felt better i went right back on suboxone. I can say this, it's not helping my chronic pain any longer. Now I'm looking for a doctor in Providence Cranston area, Warwick area, Johnston Rhode Island. Is there anyone who can help me? Back to your question, be earnest. It may interact with your medication. It's the best way to do things. Good luck.
