Proctologist Questions Hernia

Is it safe to go for hernia surgery if I have colitis?

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 4 years ago and have been undergoing treatment. I have recently been diagnosed with hernia issues and my doctor is recommending surgery to correct it... Is it safe to undergo the surgery despite my colitis?
