In brief: Not likely

Delayed stroke from brain surgery or carotid surgery is very rare.
A full stroke work-up is warranted to properly determine what the cause of the stroke was.

In brief: Surgery on what?

Are you referring to carotid artery surgery? If not, is it heart surgery? If neither of these is the case, then it is most unlikely that there is any connection.
