Alcohol: You should not have more than 1 drink a night at best. In the short term you may not have any changes that are noticable, but long gterm you are setting yourelf up for trouble.

May lead to bleeding: Alcohol may lead to an increased risk of bleeding and/or bruising. I would discuss with the surgeon to review your options.
