How much alcohol?: And was your liver affected? If you had mono hepatitis, you need to talk to your doctor and make sure your enzyme levels are completely normal. Truly social drinking (less than 2 drinks, a couple times a week at most) should not be a problem, but regular or heavier drinking may well be. Your own physician is the best person to answer this question, but my ? Is if alcohol is problem for you?
