Depends : What is the source of temperature elevation? Chronic elevation such as you describe does not sound like sepsis which would be a contraindications to elective surgery. I would evaluate source/cause of fever and move on.

Fever and surgery: Report this to your surgeon to see if you are ok for surgery.
