Yes: You've been through quite an experience. Don't overdo the celebration.

Maybe, maybe not...: Drinking alcohol may cause dehydration, and that may lead to harder / bulkier stools. While it won't affect the clot in the hemorrhoid, it may cause you more difficulty with passing stool. And that may further exacerbate your condition. If you are going to drink, make sure to consume an equivalent amount of water.

This is very good advice.
