In brief: Yes
Before surgery, at a minimum, a check of your blood count (hemogram) would be recommended.
Other labs would depend on your medical history and if you are on any medications. A urine pregnancy test should also be done unless your tubes are tied.

In brief: Yes
Your surgeon will need your baseline labs for comparison purposes later if needed.
They also need your blood type to be ready in the slim chance a transfusion is needed. They also do blood tests to ensure that you're in good health prior to surgery. You want your surgeon to be ready for anything, even if not expected. Good luck with your procedure.

In brief: Usually
Most often a CBC and t&s are done before a major surgery.
If there are any medical issues to be considered, then additional blood tests may be needed.
