Dr. ASHRAF MALEK
Specializes in Hepatology
Depends: As a general rule, first avoid heavy drink, which is for female not more than 2 drinks/day and for male not more than 3 or 4 drinks/day. If stabbed injury is severe causing liver enzymes to go high, avoid any alcohol or drugs that can cause further liver injury. If injury is mild, and once liver enzymes return and remain normal, you can drink socially, as long as no other liver disease.
