I'm not clear what your procedure will involve, or exactly what you have been going through, but a recommendation for an ischemic or hypoxic event (if that is potentially relevant here) is to supplement with d-ribose. It's a structural component of ATP. Supplementing with d-ribose will more quickly replenish purine pools than relying on natural processes. Plenty of published studies on this point but unlikely your excellent team will mention them.
Refresh what you learned about the electron transport chain/oxidative phosphorylation. If those processes cannot follow through to forming ATP, because for instance there is a temporary shortage of oxygen, you can still make ATP. By combining two ADPs and splitting out one ATP and one AMP. Too much AMP in the cell is toxic and it will be excreted or otherwise destroyed. But then when normal ETC/OP resumes there isn't enough ADP available because purine levels were reduced. d-ribose helps resolve that so worth having on hand.

We didn’t get the current blood tests until 4:30 the day before the scheduled operation, she took one look at it and said no fucking way.
I trust her call, she left it to me but pointed out I had substantially elevated risk.
/hope this helps
It doesn't matter that your wife is a senior anything. Plenty of RN's and doctors around giving advice to get a clot shot. Some of those nurses and doctors got the jab and DIED or they're severely injured and can't work. Anyone's credentials don't mean squat to me.
