Default Stopping Vitamins & Supplements prior to surgery

I know there are some pretty smart people on this forum, so just looking for people’s thoughts on which vitamins & mineral supplements / fish oils, etc, should be stopped prior to having surgery? I’ve been told to stop taking everything, but that seems a little extreme.
Suffered from back pain (on and off) since my 20's
