Easing Bunion Pain until surgery?

Saw orthopedic surgeon yesterday, who has agreed to perform bunion surgery (Chevron procedure with tendon release).

However, I am trying to hold off on surgery until my after my graduation ceremony in May...

I am wondering.... Is there any way to ease the pain until then? I have custom orthotics already and Ibuprofen is not too effective...

Or should I just go ahead and have surgery now?? (Will be casted for 4-6 wks).

Thanks!
