I am having a left hip arthroscopy in 2 weeks time. I took 150mg testosterone enanthate 4 times overthe last 2 weeks. Will this effect my surgery?

In brief: Not directly, but:

Testosterone replacement therapy is associated with increased risk of venous thromboembolism(DVT and pulmonary embolism).
The risk is likely small and preventive measures are routinely ordered pre and/or post op to prevent DVT but you should mention this to your surgeon. It may be wise to not take any more testosterone till a month after surgery. Discuss this with your physician.
