I'm getting a bit worried, since my major op, I am nowhere near the standard of what I was pre-op, and I have to perform something on Saturday - I know not what. I have just made an abomination  of a Bach P&F (Bk2 No 14), and a Debussy piece (Suite Bergamasque Prelude), and Beethoven first movement of Op26 (Pastoral), all of which I could previously play perfectly.  I might have to do something rather easier than my normal repertoire.  

Oh dear, I really hope it's nothing serious or permanent.  What about some Haydn, JC Bach and Mozart?

You may be right, I have played before all the 52 Haydn Sonatas. All 19 Mozart Sonatas I have been playing for over 50 years, (though only a couple of JC Bachs) , and have performed several  at this same monthly event  (I missed the last three months meetings).  I'll try through a couple tomorrow.

I have just googled All Creatures Great and small sheet music and I found it on musescore as a PDF you could print. Presumably it's ok to do so as it seems to be impossible to buy it.

I am sure you will be given a very warm welcome back to the meetup and whatever you decide to play will be enjoyed.

A major operation like that would take some toll on the body. Do be gentle on yourself and I hope the performance goes ok.

Anaesthetics and strong pain-killers can muck things up too. Select easier pieces for a while and give your whole body time to get back to pre-op level with regards to your playing.
Hope all goes well.

Thank you! I've got it! :)

 

F#m - You really don't need to play anything hard! If anyone is expecting you to turn up and rattle off some complicated piece, I would be very surprised! Even very simple music played well is worthy of performance, so don't pressure yourself, just choose something nice that you enjoy!
