In brief: Hold off.

Although you may not feel it, you did have sedation, and you have no way of knowing how alcohol may react with the sedatives that you got.
Most of the time the doctors giving the sedation recommend waiting until the next day before drinking. If that was the instructions they gave you, you should follow it. Be good.
