Hi,

The surgery should not be done till the fungal infection in the ear can be treated. However, if the infection is not in ear and is present somewhere else in the body, it can be done along with treatment with antifungals, if it is urgently needed.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
