I will be getting my ears ''sucktioned'' on thursday by a doctor... Do i need to put olive oil in my ears before I get this done to soften the wax? ... or is that only needed when you get ear wax removed by irrigation? ...

No no no. Do not put anything in your ear canals-- this can cause infection or blockages. Olive oil is for cooking, not for ears.

Don't put anything in your ears, unless your MD has told you to. the ear drum membrane and inner ear parts are too fragile to mess with on your own.
