your mother WBC count is too low to under go surgery as low WBC count may leads to many oppotunistic infection after surgery which may be life threatening and difficult to treat. decrease in WBC count is due to chemotheraphy and count will improve as chemotheraphy is stoped wait for some days for improvment in WBC count before surgery
take care
