echinacea stoppage time factor before surgery

I have upcoming bunion surgery-so as I'm sure you know, it will be IV sedation, certainly not general anesthesia. Well, stupid me, with slightly two weeks before the surgery, I took echinacea, as I sometimes do when I worry about catching a cold.
Then it dawned on me, DUH! Don't take herbal supplements before surgery-so I have stopped ( was only a few days on and off anyway) and it will be just about 2 weeks off before my surgery. But still, I have to wonder if they'll want to postpone me by a week (have my preadmission appointment this week upcoming)
Did some reading, and saw some of the advisories about stopping echinacea, but just want to ask around about risk factors (since I'm a worry wart and also kicking myself for not thinking)okay, I know this is an anesthesia question but just thought someone might have feedback/input. ultimately yes, my surgery center will decide. Thanks.
