In brief: Possible, yes

Surgery on the epididymis may lead to infertility.
Surgeons are aware of that and try to take precautions. However, depends on the extent of the cysts and their location if extensive surgery is needed which may impact fertility. If that happens, fertility can be regained by getting sperm surgically when you are ready to conceive.
