I would check with your surgical group to see what their recommendations are. In my opinion one month post op is a little early for whiskey. Better safe than sorry.

I'm not a drinker- haven't for 9 years due to the meds I take. But was wondering- DO people drink after having BS? I always thought it was a no-no.

my doctor and nut said alcohol would not hurt me once I am fully healed.

I like whiskey, and I like wine, especially red. but these early months are when I am loosing weight the best and I am not going to waste the carbs in the first 6 months.

I tended to have a drink oh, 2-3 a month - and I cook with wine. Once I am down in my weight it will just have to be factored in to my "carb allowance"

and, practice at home - I sure won't have my first drink in public. I think this will also be my only exception to not drinking while eating. Because it will be a special occasion, I think it's better to have a little food in my tummy.

Talk to your team, see what they recommend based on your personal medical history, medications, and surgery type.

i drink.... but not beer (i hate beer)... but i drink wine, mix drinks.... shots.

the thing you have to remember is that it doesn't take much to get drunk anymore....

One or two good margaritas and i toasty.... Even the biggest of guys get drunk faster after wls

I didn't have alcohol until 6 months out. Warning - it will hit you faster than before!

I waited 3 months. I must admit I don't miss drinking it at all.

If you are over 21 and you aren't driving, you can do a shot of whiskey whenever you want.

I am one month out. I can tolerate one beer just fine. Grain alcohols are a no. I love red wine but haven't tried yet.

Jenlynn - what type of beer did you drink?

I tried beer

Did any of you feel a throat dryness after waking up? This was two beers drank very slowly, and I stirred as much carbonation out of it before I enjoyed them. It was not right before bed, and I sleep on a wedge pillow.

Just curious now if the alcohol in those beers caused the silent reflux? Or if it's something else. But did you experience any negative effects the next day?

I felt not so great, even after two beers. I won't ever drink more than that again.

My doctor gave me the okay to have alcohol, but honestly I can't take it. It makes me sick and I end up throwing up even just having one drink makes me sick.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
