You are listing hormone levels, but you don't list reference ranges for the lab where they were done, and these vary.  If your doctor told you that the levels are normal, then they're normal.  You haven't supplied any other information about your history, so it's impossible for us to comment on the appropriateness and timing of your surgery.

There is no medical history or reference values for your tests as was noted.Normal hormone levels are acceptable prior to surgery,if your hormone levels are not normal the cause of the abnormality needs to be clarified before surgery can occur.
