Is crying harmful after cataract surgery?

My favorite aunt passed away tonight. Monday I have my first cataract surgery. Was wondering if I should go to her funeral in another state cause I will be crying very hard. I don t want to put added stress like that on my eye while it is trying to heal. What are your thoughts.
