Garak isn't so plain and simple anymore. The DS9 Rewatch goes way down in the hole to do "The Wire."
The next day, Quark summons Bashir to his bar, where Garak is excessively drunk. However, he’s not so drunk that he can’t see through Bashir’s transparent attempt to get him to the infirmary. But the pain gets bad enough that Garak collapses. Bashir has Ops beam him all the way across the hall to the infirmary rather than wait for a cart. (This is particularly hilarious given that when Quark was shot in “Necessary Evil,” Bashir did wait for the cart.)
