It varies by doctor and procedure, but many will recommend 4 weeks off FOLFOX and 6 weeks off Avastin before surgery. For more minor procedures there might be more leniency there, but both will delay healing and increase risk of infection, bleeding, etc. Of course this needs to be weighed up against the importance/urgency of the procedure (eg for an emergency obstruction, etc.), and the risk of being off chemo.
