I hope the surgery goes well.

Only from googling, vestibular neurectomy seems to have been a standard operation for many years, and I haven't found any suggestion that it leads to breathing complications for the human patients. Animal experiments may well have been more drastic, for example, exposing them to high levels of CO2. As scott1328 says, your physician and surgeon will have far more informed advice.
