When did you have your first alcoholic drink post-op?

Hello Ladies, I haven't, until yesterday, felt like drinking anything alcoholic since surgery. I don't intend to until next weekend at the earliest because I don't think it will do my poor bruised, battered healing body any good! Having said this, my husband and I do like to have a glass of wine or 2 at the weekends and I'm looking forward to doing this again . Interested to know what you've done, if anyone was given medical advice over this, if you did have a glass of wine and felt terrible etc! I'll be almost 4 weeks post-op by next Sat. TIA

I started having wine with dinner after about 2 weeks when I wasn't taking Percoset anymore. Its nice to have something to take the "edge" off every so often!!

Me too, I love my red wine and DH and I enjoy it often with dinner. I think when I will be completely off all kind of medications I will start having my little glass of happiness for dinner.

I heard that red wine triggers hot flashes, so I am wondering if this is something to expect?

About two weeks post op. Granted I was in the hospital for 6 days (tah-23cm torsed tumour). No bad reactions!

I waited six and a half weeks after surgery and stopped drinking exactly a month prior to my surgery.
