I Understand you shouldn't drink it but what if youre out with the girls and you want a drink? I understand that there is extra calories involved that you shouldnt have with your diet. PS I hate wine! I am a former beer drinker :(

How far post op are you? With beer you have to be wary of carbonation, especially early postop. I've also heard people say that their alcohol resistance was much lower after surgery, so a small amount may have a big effect.

Water is boring and I was asking seriously so if you have nothing to add then don't. I am a little over 3 weeks post op. and I am having my annual party at my tiki bar next week.

I feel you Skyjack1, I enjoy drinking nights with my girls also. Lucky for me I love wine so no carbonation issues to deal with, but I am curious to find out if I will become a member of the " One and Done" club with a lower tolerance. Trial and error I guess.

I've had a wine, vodka and clamato, vodka and lemonade, rye and water...not all at once on different occassions! It just doesn't seem the same as before I never actually ended up finishing any of them but I felt like I was taking part. I did not feel the fast dizzy effects that some speak of but I'm sure it's different for everyone. My docs plan says I can have a drink after 30 days just with all the calorie warnings ect that everyone has heard. I'm lucky lately if I get 600 cal in daily anyway so I counted the cocktail in my calories for the day. My only other worry was that when I drank in the past I would lose my food portion control...muchies and I would'nt want to unwittingly put myself in that position right now. But so far I haven't felt like more than one drink anyway.

I noticed I get tipsy after 1/2 a glass of wine now, however it wears off just as fast. I am almost 6 weeks post op and had my first drink at 4 weeks out. No judgement please! I don't think 1 drink will hurt.

If I were you I would treat yourself to a pins colada or something fun. My moto is everything is ok in moderation. :-)

Well beer is as always my drink of choice. I am afraid I will stretch the sleeve though. Is that forever? I had a glass of wine and a vodka drink last night and they just dont do it for me (no judgement please)

Do you like mixed drinks? Like a Tequila sunrise, or Vodka cranberry, Bloody Mary, Margarita? I would be worried about stretching your sleeve with anything carbonated. I am missing SF Red Bull like crazy! What if you let the beer go a little flat first? Would that just make it gross to drink I imagine?

From what I heard, yes :/ Carbonation will permanetly stretch your sleeve. I know people who have had surgery and can ttotally tolerate soda and beer but its just a bummer to stretch the sleeve after going through the surgery. I hope you find an alternative!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
