Brief Answer:
NO!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I will recommend against taking this drug before surgery. A single missed dose will have no impact on treatment. However, staying with an empty stomach is always advised before any kind of surgery. Also, many drugs would be administered tomorrow such that you are better up staying away from drugs that can be conveniently paused.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be. May you have a safe and even free surgery tomorrow and a fast recovery!
