Probably: If you are no longer febrile, do not have a significant productive cough or wheezing, and you have completed a course of treatment, it is probably okay to go ahead. Other medical issues and a thorough physical exam may result in a decision to delay an elective surgery.

Most likely: It depends on the type of surgery and anesthesia required and if your lungs sound clear now. You say you feel well so that's a good sign that it should be alright. Keep taking your inhalers as prescribed and call the surgery center or your doctor with any worsening symptoms. Good luck. Oh, stop smoking if you do. :).
