In brief: Depends

Don't drink alcohol until your wound has healed and you are fully off of narcotics and muscle relaxants.
These meds are not to be taken with alcohol. And as always....Moderation is the key. One glass of wine after a month may be okay but several drinks is usually not a good idea. Speak to your md for detailed info regarding your specific case.
