How long should you wait to drink alcohol after a foot surgery?

Talk to your Surgeon. Generally after surgery you should avoid alcohol while you are taking any medication that is processed through the liver. Therefore, the best answer to this question is obtained by asking your surgeon who will know what medications he/she has prescribed you.
Post surgery. Before your hangover starts. But tell your doctor you are a alcoholic, so he can put you on a detox protocol and prevent rum fits.
DON'T COMBINE. If you're taking narcotic analgesics or antibiotics, don't use alcohol. Dr. Latva.
