When can you have an alchoholic drink?

I was just wondering when I might be able to have a glass of wine. I'm supposed to go to a Christmas party tomorrow night. I know I will be sitting most of the time, but if I wanted to have a glass of wine would it hurt anything? Just wondering.

I had a drink at two weeks post op. Just one because I was driving later in the evening and it seemed to affect me more than normal. I wasn't taking any medication at that point though. Not a good idea to mix pills and alcohol...

I had a drink at 2 1/2 weeks post op. Just a little Amaretto over ice, I had a wicked sore throat and it was so soothing, it worked too. Asked my doc. he told me I could have a glass of wine as long as I am not taking my pain meds and he took me off the iron and colace yesterday too. Don't think I am a drinker because that would be far from the truth, I buy liquors mainly for my cheesecakes (which I see locally) and to add to coffee or hot cocoa occasionally, and I use wine for cooking mostly or if we have company.

They let you drink in the HOSPITAL? How great. Where do you live? I think I will be fine. I haven't taken any pain meds since I left the hospital and I actually cheated tonight and had a glass of wine at home to see how it effected me.

haha, I loved stingray's reply. I had a glass of wine 1 week after surgery. By then I was long off the pain killers. I stopped them two days after surgery. I started motrin as soon as I found out that I was given morphine for the operation. I watched my dad slowly die from an aneurism back in 1988. He was on a morphine drip so I wasn't too happy to see one hooked up to me. I was willing to deal with the pain just to be off it and on motrin. I even opened the hospital window to breath in fresh air to get rid of the cloud from the morphine. So when I got back home and wanted to rest and relax. I would have a glass of wine with my husband. ~ Cindy

Hi
The Hospital I was in served a can of beer or a white /red wine with the evening meal.
I recall really enjoying the glass of wine in Hospital. One evening the lady brought in my dinner all okay but she forgot my wine !!!.
I chased her about the wards til I got my glass of wine !!!

So I think I must be a bigger lush !!!!

drinky-poo

I had a glass of wine 2 weeks, 2 days post-op. I had not taken any meds but ibuprofen since 3 or 4 days post-op bcse it made me nauseated and didn't help with the spinal headaches. I had wine, watched Survivor and felt like I was truly recovering and headed for a much healthier, happier, uterus-free life. I had another glass last night while cooking dinner (since I was using the wine to cook!) and felt a little light-headed. Since I really don't want to fall down or pass out, I will save the imbibing for mealtime or after-dinner. Not a good idea on empty tummy!
Bon apetit!

Hi there

I tried a glass (okay---two) a week post op -- and paid for it dearly the next day. I felt like I had a dozen ! I guess the digestive system is still quite sensitive from all that moving around during surgery. I waited another week -- tried again -- just one this time -- and again the effect seemed to be intensified. I have learned my lesson -- and think I can do without my "nightcap" until I am fully healed !
