Delaying the surgery is recommended only upto 6weeks after covid, not more. Especially if you have multiple stones and not a single calculus.. complications like pancreatitis and obstructive jaundice are known which can be convert a safe elective surgery to a complicated one with delayed recovery. so I would recommend to get the surgery done once 6 weeks are over.
Next Steps
consult your surgeon and get pre anesthetic investigations done
