no known risk for surgery

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are no known reasons that trimetoprim cannot be used in a person having surgery for any reason. It has been tested in the past to see if it would prevent infections in persons undergoing a different type of surgery.

You should let the surgeons know that you are using it to make sure that there are no interactions with the medications that they may prescribe before, during or after surgery.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
