When is it safe to drink alcohol after a laparoscopic gallbladder removal?

answered:

Wait a few days

Cholecystectomy
After any surgical procedure, it is important to remain hydrated to promote healing and good kidney function. Alcohol use commonly results in dehydration, and should be avoided for up to a week after surgery, or until you feel fully "recovered".

Would wait several days to a week or so. Wait until pains are resolved, you are eating normally, and no longer using pain medications. May also want to wait until you see your surgeon for your post-operative visit to check your healing progress.
