Use Nux vomica if you have overloaded your liver with too much alcohol, fatty and fried foods, junk foods, drugs of all kinds, spicy foods, and all kinds of stimulants. These remedies both help to clear out the liver which may be backed up from a toxic overload. Women are more likely to need Phosphorus and men are more likely to need Nux vomica, but the most important thing is whether your symptoms match. Take a dose (a few pellets of the 30c potency dissolved in your mouth) the morning of the surgery, and try to have someone administer it to you afterwards if possible.
One way to do that: dissolve a couple of pellets in a small amount of water, put it in a small decorative jar, label it Holy Water, and ask the nurses to dab it on your lips and temples if you're not coming around after surgery. Is it holy water? Yes, if you believe in it. Healing is a sacred act, and this can heal you.
