Why do the medications and surgical procedures not work as well for the patient who  also has ms?

In brief: Possible

Depends on the surgery andcondition of the ms.
Ms affets sensory and motor neurological symptoms and it may be resonable that if surgery is perform in an area the MS affects the tissue may not respond as well as othe areas not affected.But there may be additional causes for your poor response and may not always be attributted to the ms.

In brief: Really?

I am unaware of failures of medicines and surgical procedures needed for co-morbidities occurring with ms pts.
Some ms pts can get worse on cipro, (ciprofloxacin) and a touted procedure to fix veins draining from the brain has been shown not to be of value to treat ms, but otherwise, the ms pt responds similarly to other people if medical or surgical treatment is required for other conditions.
