Drinking Alcohol the Day before Surgery?

Answer

Drinking alcohol the day before surgery is not recommended. Studies show that drinking even moderate amounts of alcohol the day before surgery can weaken the immune system and slow down recovery. It is extremely important to be honest about your drinking habits with your doctor, especially before surgery. The proper information could be life-saving because the surgeon and anesthetist can take proper precautions. Pre-operative instructions from the doctor should be followed to the letter to avoid complications.
