In brief: A very long time.
We know that alcohol has negative effects on your cerebellum which is related to balance and coordination.
And we also know that people who drink suffer falls. It would be a rare day that i would take a chance like that after needing surgery for a ruptured achilles tendon!

In brief: Do not
Why do you need alcohol for? It is the worse poison to your nervous system.After a surgery there should be much more important issues to deal with.
