I don't know if this is the place to post this but here goes my question. I had acl reconstruction about 3 weeks back. I'm pretty much fine now, no more limp and other surgery involved shit, and I have full range of motion back. I'd like to know if any of you have experience on consuming alcohol after having acl surgery. A friend tells me that his knee swelled up after drinking alcohol the night of his injury day. But, common sense tells me that it isn't right to conclude that alcohol = swelling because it might just as well have been the accident, and his case was very different from me. I tried calling up my doc, but he was out of the country. Any of you know if alcohol does something to promote swelling after surgery? Maybe similar experiences? thanks Edit: PS: I stopped taking meds and antibiotics last week.
