Progesterone and surgery/anesthesia?

Progesterone and surgery/anesthesia
I have scoured the Internet high and low and cannot seem to find any information regarding progesterone specifically prior to surgery. On a few occasions over the last year or so when I’ve had to miss a week or more of my 100-150 mg dose of progesterone my pain, fatigue and muscle weakness comes back severely and I can hardly function. I am however going under my first surgery and anesthesia and was told to cease taking progesterone or any other hormone for at least 10 days prior. I’m only a few days off and I’m already starting to crash and I’m worried recovering from surgery will be so much harder if my body is compromised.
Please if anyone can give me advice or feedback if they’ve had surgery and been OK.
