I am 25yo male - day 6 post tonsillectomy. I asked the same questions when I was in hospital as I also like to drink.

Firstly - no worries about drinking before. Don't do it within 24 hours (you don't want any in your system for the operation) but 1 week before will have no effect.

As for after - they told me generally 2 weeks. First, you shouldn't drink when you are taking antibiotics or pain killers (except for plain paracetamol). But anything with codeine or oxycodone (or smiliar) should never be mixed with alcohol.

I was eager to drink after surgery but now the pain has increased I couldn't think of anything worse.

As long as you're not on pills and you feel up to it, go for it.

I waited approximately 3 weeks for the first cocktail. Even then it was just wine or a margarita, no shots until maybe 6 weeks. The bubbles from champagne will feel weird.

I am 18 years old and 10 days post-opt from my tonsillectomy and removal of adnoids. I've heard different things as far as wait-time until alcohol should be consumed. Can someone who has had the surgery or knows help me out here? 2 weeks? 3 weeks? Is beer better first? helpppp

Perhaps this is just my logic, but alcohol thins the blood. I don't think it's a good idea to drink for at least three weeks--aka when all the scabs have fallen off. You want new tissue to be secure, so you're not a risk for bleeding.

I had my tonsils taken out about 2 weeks ago and am feeling fine.
I healed pretty quickly, and as dumb as it may sound, drank a beer 5 or 6 days after surgery.
Other than the carbonation, it went down fine.
3 days later I was at a friends birthday, and took a few Vodka shots.
The first one stung a bit, but the others went down fine.
I may not be the best at example following, and it's probably best you don't drink, but I am perfectly fine; alcohol did not negatively affect me or the healing.

i had my tonsillectomy 5 days ago. the day after surgery i consumed about half a glass of white wine. i don't recommend beer because of the yeast. the white wine actually helped, however i am also prescribed liquid hydrocodone so i made sure not to have any in my system at least 4 hours before drinking a bit.

i had my tonsils taken out 2 days ago, and theres no beating around the bush, its really really sore!! im 26 and the older you are the worse it is. All i would advise is take your meds on time every day and as the effects of the meds come and go time it right to get ood into your system. It really helps, the more you eat the cleaner and quicker it will heal. Also water.....loads of it, as much as you can force down.
As for Alcohol, you wont even feel like it so dont bother! i would give it 1 - 2 weeks anyways, but as answer below says, dont take booze with meds..dangerous. just heal up and then party!
