Title: drinking alcohol?
Post by: EvDog on June 04, 2009, 02:58:29 PM
yes, i was just wondering if drinking alcohol would have any effect on the healing progress and the outcome of the surgery?  now im not talking about interaction with meds, because i am almost out of those, but the actual physical healing process.

If you can manage a week without it then try, especially if your taking post op pain killers.

After that, well mines a pint mate, cheers!  ;D

I'm quitting that shit for a while, couple of months. Though after a while it probably makes no difference to the healing.

I'm just sick of wasting money, health, memories and emotional regret... on getting wasted.

It's cool to have a few pints, few beers, whatever, but I'm really done with the whole drink-til-ya-drop nonsense.
