This would be a question best answered by your doctors. When do you go in for your post-surgery evaluation? This would be a great time to talk with your doctor about possible medications that you would be taking, to see if there are any drug interactions (as well as any other medications or treatment regimes you are undergoing now, in case they would cause the hormonal contraception to not be as effective).

How are you doing after your surgery?
