In brief: Why not?
If you anticipate a prolonged flight, you may want to speak with your surgeon, or at least employ an inflatable ring ("doughnut") upon which to sit.
Considerations also need to include: is the abscess sterile or infected?; is there underlying inflammatory bowel disease (that may be active)?; is there bleeding or oozing from the site?
