While definitely never going through what you have - how "well" do you feel like you function? If you don't have enough energy to do normal day-to-day tasks than I might want to hold off. I'd do a physical beforehand. Have various things tested, get your blood work done, etc.
Sounds like you've had a lot of unfortunate things happen. Glad you're still with us!
Your doctor is probably doing a good thing (although I can understand how much it annoys you) by telling you not to have it too soon. If you can lay out a few reasons and prove you are well enough to go through with the procedure than I think they will see you can go through with it.
Best of luck.
