Peace of mind on your trip depends on the severity of the broken stud. Damage can go from one single stud with the barrel nut end popped off (that can be repaired in situ) to several broken studs deep in the block with heads clapping at every revolution.
I'd get as much detailed info as you can on the issue then make a decision. Most likely once a shop has the engine apart you will want to do many while you are in there things which take time. I wouldn't rush it at that point.
