Have you asked your doctor or pharmacist?

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they can have some blood thinning effect, so it might be necessary to stop taking it, before surgery.

They could also be concern about it interacting with other medications you may be given, during or after the surgery.
