Is it advisable to stop oxypro elite 2 weeks before knee surgery?

My husband is having surgery on his knee this week and has been taking oxypro elite. He has a history of high blood pressure and the oxypro elite says to stop 2 weeks before a surgery. Should I be concerned about anything? He is 44 and 6 2 and weighs 244
