That's one of the problems with MS...so many other things in life can effect it.
I believe that he wanted you to stop all the supplements because he was not sure if any of them combined with the others might be detrimental to the anesthetic. Doctors, in general, don't have a lot of knowledge about supplements and they will say to stop everything for a short period of time to be on the safe side.
As for your risk...tough call and only you know if it's worth it or not. Good luck with whichever decision you make.
