Alcohol before major surgery

 The girls want to take me out tonight for a pre-surgery girls night out.  Yes, my girls will come up with anything "themed" for a night out.

I have had such a hell-ish week a night out sounds good.  I don't plan on drinking too much but the key word in this sentence is plan when they are involved.  :)

My surgery is Monday afternoon.  Is it OK to imbibe in some spirits tonight?  Would it effect anything for Monday?  They tell me to stop worrying so much, but that's my nature.  :)

Alcohol is a blood thinner. This far in advance may be ok, but I wouldn't drink for probably a week before a surgery.

I think you are OK to have a glass or two of something. Just don't overdo it. What kind of surgery?

Have fun tonight and good luck with the surgery!

Hysterectomy.  It's laparoscopic....does that matter?  :)

 Yeah, the blood thinner part gets me nervous.  I've already stopped all of my migraine medication except for one (hense the hell-ish week).

 I don't think I could overdo it even if I tried.  I've been awake since Tuesday morning so I'll probably drop around 10pm.  LOL

Well, if you are tired, alcohol can get catch you pretty quickly :) Just be careful. But then, alcohol may help you sleep too! Sounds like you will benefit from some zz's :)

Let us know tomorrow how toninght goes !
