If you feel good now, then why ruin it by drinking? I do it all the time, then I ask myself that question in the middle of the night when I got to get up to pi$$ when I normally would be sleeping if I wouldn't have drank.

Old school Dr. would say sure, just within reason.

I grew up in an age where it was ok for a pregnant woman to enjoy a drink occasionally and to put bourbon on the gums of a teething baby.

I've enjoyed a drink or 3, after being under and I'd do it again.

Some of those drugs they knock you out with or give you during surgery and whiskey do not mix.

Next time save some cash and just have them use localized anesthetic.

Afterwards you can drink what you want for sure that way!

I’d venture to say, Leemo has at one time or another been in every bar and tavern in Matagorda and if he can survive that, a little gas and whiskey is nothing.

I it my non-professional opinion that there is a proper place for whiskey in your medicinal arsenal, especially when I can’t sleep. However, I have something else I can recommend if the pain gets bad after the anesthesia wears off:

Try alternating 1000 mg of acetaminophen with 600 mg of ibuprofen every three hours (such that you end up taking each one every six hours). For example, take 1000 mg acetaminophen at 12:00 noon, then 600 mg ibuprofen at 3:00 PM, followed again by 1000 mg acetaminophen at 6:00 PM, then 600 mg ibuprofen at 9:00 PM. And so on and so forth…

I’ve had two or three doctors prescribe this regimen after surgery in place of narcotic pain meds. I won’t say that they work as well as narcotic pain meds, but they come pretty dang close.

DISCAIMER: I am not a medical professional and am only passing along information I’ve gleaned from those who are. You should check with your doctor or dentist to see if this regimen is compatible with the procedure you had or with your personal health history.
