Thanks for query,
Any active infection in the body prior to surgery should be treated first.
But in your case tell your operating surgeon and after examination let him decide.
Ok and bye.

don't depend upon yahoo answers for this sort of questions....the doctors will decide before surgery whether they can do the surgery or not based your health condition.
