I am having thr surgery tomorrow. I have a prolapsed mitral valve. I am assuming that antibiotics will be given before and during the surgery, right, as this is cause for infection, anyway.?

To be very sure of this, check with your doctor. There is no way that the CD posters would know what he is going to do. He may have even forgotten about your valve.

ALL surgeries carry a risk of infection.

As a rule, ALL hip replacement surgeries are preceded by a dose of IV antibiotics with or without a cardiac or valve issue

As noted above, only your surgeon can answer your specific question
