    is this sentence ok?

    "I'm going to try to buy tickets for the next weekend, independently of you undergoing the surgery next Friday or not."

    Hi,
    Is this sentence fine, please?
    Thanks.

    (Not a teacher)

    If you mean the weekend that comes at the end of this week, say:

    "I'm going to try to buy tickets for next weekend whether you undergo surgery or not".

    If you mean the weekend that follows a specified weekend (perhaps after the coming one), say:

    "I'm going to try to buy tickets for the next weekend whether you undergo surgery or not."
