I work on a surgical unit getting patient's ready for surgery, both pre testing, and the morning of surgery.
We instruct not to drink alcohol within 5 days, and some cases have been canceled if a patient has had alcohol within 24 hrs of surgery. Depends upon the doctor and the anesthesiologists involved in the case. This is just at my facility.

Some people go on the rule that it is easier to get forgiveness than to get permission. I am sure that this is true, but you really want to do what is best for your outcomes.
