Such a great comparison. Last year, a crackhead broke into my house and went through me and my families things looking for valuables to pawn to support his drug addiction. I don't think my unhealthy relationship with food compares to the actions of a drug addict. And yes, if the OP without even thinking about it does a line of coke and chases it with alcohol before thinking it might have an effect on their recent major abdominal sirgery, they're an addict not an occasional user. Thanks for minimizing that.

I'm with you. food is something that is legal and every person needs to live. Cocaine, Heroin, ICE etc are all illegal and are not required for survival.

Don't think I've minimized anything - it's obvious the OP has a problem. That's why she posted, after all.

Your post makes it clear you have personal issues with drug users. Perhaps it is best to resolve those rather than taking it out on unrelated people on a forum.

I'm sorry to hear what you went through, and I'm saying this with kindness, not as an attack. I simply don't think attacking unrelated people with addiction issues is the answer. The attacks could very well be directed toward you instead, and I don't think you would appreciate it any more than the rest of us would.

Why not redirect that negative energy into another post where you can build someone up instead of tearing them down?

I’m having sleeve surgery next month it’s mad expensive I’m doing self pay. I feel for her because addiction is real. Reason why she needs psychiatrist and proper prescription meds that won’t affect her sleeve. I see many people like me are on Wellbutrin.

If the OPs intent was to find out about drugs affecting the sleeve, I would say the two biggest to worry about would be weed and alcohol. Once your stomach is reduced in size, I have heard the alcohol hits you way faster and way harder. Weed would of course make you get the munchies which could lead to overeating and making yourself sick or stretching your sleeve. I can’t see any other drugs really causing a problem. Then again, anything you have to swallow could be a problem benzodiazepines and opiodes things of that nature.
Here’s an idea, don’t do drugs and you will be fine.
If you drink, limit it to 1 or 2 drinks and stop.
There, I have solved this problem for everyone.

You didn't wreck it, but you're going to have to go slow on the alcohol from now on. I'm guessing you're in the UK and this is going to be hard, since pretty much everything is centered around drinking in a way it isn't in the US, but your tolerance for alcohol is going to be radically different from what it was before. I'm ten months out and can get knocked for a loop with two G&Ts. Three months is still pretty early for reintroducing alcohol, talk to your doctor about when you can start drinking again - and obviously your changed drinking tolerance is going to impact decision-making... and that's where the coke comes in. Because you know you shouldn't be doing that with a compromised digestive system and surgical healing.

Talk to your doctor about the recreational drugs too. Or, if you think you're going to hit a judgement wall there, talk to another health counselor.

If it helps at all, there's a significant cultural difference US/UK when it comes to talking about drugs, and I think you accidentally ran into the buzzsaw with your original post. The puritanical streak in the US is considerably wider and more opinionated than in the UK. There are a lot of posts around this forum about how people's social lives have changed now they can't drink much and it's changed the way they experience the bar, so maybe look up some of those to find fellow travelers?

I really appreciate the people attempting to answer this honestly and not jumping down this persons throat. The reason we have these forums are for questions some people might find uncomfortable. Shame on those people acting all offended... this is a SUPPORT center

Coke is like this, you will feel fantastic for like an hour and then you have to do more, I was starting to use coke in addition to my drinking when I finally hit bottom and got sober.
I am an alcoholic to the core, so I simply have to abstain from drinking. Having said that, I am an addict too and cannot use any form of drug or I will abuse it even something as simple as Benadryl. I will abuse anything that makes me feel good, hence my food addiction. I am a food addict and that is what led me to getting up to 440 pounds. Food was the only thing I had left to abuse. I was 9 years sober when I got sleeved and 3 months after getting sleeved I relapsed and almost died. Like literally almost died, my wife had to call 911 and I had to be taken to the ER. Why did this happen? I didn’t protect my sobriety and once I couldn’t abuse food anymore my alcoholism and drug addiction came back with a vengeance. I am sober today by the grace of God and very fortunate I did not die the night I relapsed.
Many prayers..glad you survived to share and help other ppl.

It can damage all sorts of things not least of which is the brain. But I’m sure you already know that and you are going to go ahead anyway.

Cocaine is not a one time thing, its highly addictive.

Cocaine damages many other organs in the body. It reduces blood flow in the gastrointestinal tract, which can lead to tears and ulcerations.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
