Brief Answer:
colchicine should not be used with rosuvastatin

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

colchicine and rosuvastatin should not be used together as they may induce muscular injury (they're both toxic for the muscles) and they may also interact to increase the drugs' levels in the blood (therefore increasing the likelihood for side effects).
I don't know of any contraindication involving the procedures you've mentioned. Be sure to tell all the drugs you're using to the surgeon though...

I hope it helps!
Kind regards!
