How many had a drink...or want to...?



How many sisters have had a drink since their hysterectomy?
How long did you wait and what did you have?
Any ill effects?
I have not had anything but I would love to have a nice cold Deshutes Black Butte Porter!

Why wouldn't you have a drink? If you're on narcotics, you wouldn't want to overdo it, but a beer at this point...what would be the problem? Australia sounds like a sane place! When I was on vicodin for a week after surgery, I couldn't drink without getting queasy, but after I stopped the vicodin, I went back to the occassional glass or wine or shot of bourbon.

I'm having wine as we speak. It hasn't bothered me at all. My friends are coming over Friday night. I take me blood pressure meds early enough, have a few and don't over do it. I love my wine so enjoy!!!

Hi FW chelle, Yep totally serious, our private hospitals in Australia now how to look after us . We even had a choice of a Merlot or a Chardy. It was a cute little bottle that held about 1.5 glasses.

I quit anything alcoholic 2 nights before my surgery in January. I didn't have any again until dinner on Easter ( I decided that as long as I hadn't had any, I'd swear off for Lent, too). It knocked me for a loop!! I was snoring on the couch...mind you, this was only about 2-3 ozs.!!! I have, since then, had about 3 glasses of wine, same size (2-3 ozs., so not really "glasses"), and one peach margarita which was mostly fruit juice, and it went with a large Mexican dinner, so it didn't bother me. I am not on any meds either...it just took a long time for my stomach to "think" it could handle it, even though I had no nausea after the surgery. I am better off without it! By the way, when I was in the hospital in 1987 for our DS's birth, they gave us a candlelight dinner, complete with a tiny bottle of wine!!! THAT knocked me out, too!! Anyway, I think sometimes I want a glass, but then I wise up. HA! Do you think I've lost any weight by not drinking???? Noooooo.... Oh, well!!!
