Hip replacement to be done. Will green tea with honey and ginseng cause a problem?

My husband is suppose to have a hip replacement on Tuesday, the only thing that may stop him is one more blood test to see if some numbers with the kidneys changes. I was trying to determine if green tea with honey and ginseng would cause a problem with this. He is in such bad shape with his hip and I do not want this test to stop him from the surgery.

No green tea has nothing to do with this and you can safely give this. They are going to check his blood urea and creatinine level and if these are within normal limit his hip replacement can be done.
