Yes, Mondays' the day, as I recall.
My surgeon prescribed some Ativan prior to my surgery because I told him I was apprehensive and needed something to calm me down. When I went in for my pre-op checkup, they said I could take one on the morning of surgery to make it a little less intimidating. It helped. Just be sure to tell the nurse what he took and how much when he checks in, and then also tell the anesthesiologist before they put him under..
