I am having hip replacement surgery next week and am on Crestor medication. Do I need to cease from taking this medication prior to surgery?

No, it is a statin that is used to help lower cholesterol levels. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches.

What medications has your doctor told you to stop taking, just blood thinners, or did they include any other categories?

Re: Verwon (# 1)

I took creator for many years. It was for cholesterol. I was extremely over the cholesterol limit at 1200 and sometimes higher. My triglycerides were high as well. After a few months of Tricor and Creator I was in total shock that my limits fell very fast and at lower levels. It saved me. I even wrote to the company's to tell them. I think I would have been the perfect poster woman for their ads
