Without knowing more: about your current cardiac status it is impossible to predict your cardiac clearance just based on a report of previous PVCs. These are concerns you should discuss with your health care providers who have your full medical history.

Probably. I would recommend a visit to your primary physician before surgery for evaluation and routine EKG. Your anesthesiologist will also evaluate you preoperatively to prepare you for a safe anesthetic.
