No, you will not.

The anesthesiologists will use medicines that are not controlled substances

what type of surgery are you having?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am having an abortion, I was raped while under the influence, that is why i am here :(
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

That is beyond horrible. I'm very sorry to hear that. I can't imagine what you are going through

They will be able to work with you and not use meds that will show up

you should be okay.
