It is especially ill-advised when patients are taking narcotic pain medication.
Alcohol can cause dehydration, which can be an issue a few days after surgery.
At seven weeks, you are mostly healed, and I see no reason why moderate alcohol consumption would be a problem.
Always best to check with your surgeon first.
Best of luck,

It should be fine to consume alcohol at this point in your recovery. Be sure to follow your physician's instructions for follow up visits to ensure that everything is healing properly, but it sounds like you are progressing nicely.
