Can Consuming Alcohol Post Colonoscopy Procedure Cause Any Risks?
conducted this morning I have been stressed. Would it be alright if I had a cocktail tonight at 7 p.m.?
normally wait at least 24 hours
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is understandable to be more than a little stressed.
Most medical centers advise waiting at least 24 hours after a procedure before taking any alcohol.
It would be best to wait till this time period has passed, if possible, before using any alcohol at all.
The reason for this is that the alcohol can worsen some of the side effects of propofol or other anesthesia.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
