Fistulotomy advice please!?

I'm getting a "simple" fistulotomy done on thurs oct 24th. I am beyond nervous have no idea what to expect. My job is expecting me back on Monday/Tuesday but from the posts I've read people take a full week to two weeks off of work. I am nervous about pain management. I was diagnosed with UC when I was 13,now 27. Over the years suffered from hemorrhoids, then the last year developed a fissure. The fissure has now turned into a fistula. I am going on a cruise on November 15th and nervous that I wont be recovered enough to enjoy the cruise. Should I postpone surgery till after the cruise?
