Wish you had included more details about the situation. What is the proposed surgery for you? To what chemicals are you actually sensitive? Does the list of chemicals include anesthetic agents, antibiotics or cleansing agents used for preparing the skin for surgery?

It is not difficult to find out if you are allergic to the drugs going to be used in your surgery/post operative period. You must discuss this point with your surgeon and anesthetist (the doctor who gives you anesthesia). They will make a list of probable drugs/chemicals to be used for your specific case. Thereafter, you could find out if you are allergic to any of those. If so, go back to your surgeon/anesthetist and choose alternative medicines.

Hope you successfully undergo your surgery without any allergy problem. Thanks a lot for using
