Breathing problems, started periods. Nose surgery scheduled. Will periods cause complications?

Hi, my name is XXXXXXXX, I m an 18 years old girl and I m having a nose surgery tomorrow due to breathing problems. But today my period started and my doctor had warned me not to be on my period while having the surgery. I was wondering if that would cause me any complications or induce any risk. And should I let the doctor know of it? Please help! Thanks in advance.

Dear Vera
Thanks for your query
I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
It is suggested that one should avoid planned surgery during period. As such this is not a definite contraindications but then anesthesia and post operative period brings lot of distress and uncomfortable situation for the patient. Menses in this duration increases one’s agony. I feel it is better to share it with your doctor
I hope this answers your concerns
with regards
