Stop Remi for surgery?

Has anyone stopped or skipped a dose of Remicade in order to have surgery for something other than the Crohn's. I am scheduled for surgery on my foot which will involve a large incision, and am told to not take my Remi again until told to. Have been in remission (Amen) for a few months, and am worried about a flare.

I hope your surgery goes well and you stay in remission.
