Hello
You can have the surgery.
There are a variety of procedures to make this safe.
If the chemo is to control the swelling, then this can be done first.
I have actually confirmed this with a surgeon.
I would get a second surgical opinion, unless the purpose of the chemo is well defined and needs to be done first.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
