Q. Is it safe to drink alcohol after stomach biopsy?



Hi doctor,

I received an upper endoscopy and biopsy about 10 hours ago. My weight is 150 lbs and I was given 50 mcg of Fentanyl and 180 mg of Propofol for sedation. The procedure was successful and there were no immediate complications. I came home and rested for several hours and have plans to go out with some friends. I would like to consume two or three pegs of alcohol. Am I safe to drink alcohol? The only side effect I am feeling now is slight stomach irritation from the biopsy and nothing else. Please let me know.

  • I would like to suggest avoiding alcoholic beverages and spicy hot foods. The reason is the stomach biopsy.
  • I am not worried about the sedation. If you do not have cloudiness of mind, then you are good.
  • You just got the stomach biopsy. It would be in the best interest of your health if you could avoid foods and medications causing excessive irritation of the stomach for 24 to 48 hours.
