A.

I don't have enough information to answer that question, but my guess would be NO. You would need to ask your surgeon and the anesthesia team that question personally.

I don't know what kind of surgery you are having, but the anesthesiologist (or your surgeon) may not want any other drugs of this nature in your system while you are sedated.
