Manuella, I had a surgery unrelated to cancer, but flew to England 2 days later. I had not troubles.
EmCee, Can you ask the doctors to do Oncotype or Mammaprint to help definitely decide if chemo is warranted or not? That would ease your mind. I mention that because I had one doc at a major medical clinic tell me I absulutely did not need chemo. My gut told me otherwise. My local MO agreed with me but ordered the oncotype for more info to help make sure we were making the right decision. It came back quite high, which surprised him (and the other MO who had recommended against chemo, but changed his tune when he saw the results).
