A.
Probably not, but you were given the instructions for your procedure, so it would be wise to follow them since there are no universal instructions. What matters is what your doctor has instructed you to do. Go to the procedure and disclose that you did take the ibuprofen. It is really up to the medical professional doing the procedure to make this call.
