What kind of alcoholic beverages do you guys order at bars that are low sugar/no carbonation?

Is it appropriate to bring sugar free crystal light packets into a bar to mix with vodka? Or is that ride?

Sugar free crystal light is a good idea haha I drink white Russians and bloody Mary's. It's the only thing my stomach has zero issues with. I'm 5 months, I had my first drink after 2 months. Definitely Google drink ideas. The sugar wasnt a huge concern for me because theres more in fruit so I just picked what tasted good and didnt change how I felt. Side note. I get buzzed slower... but then suddenly just drunk fast. It's so weird. I'll feel nothing ...nothing....nothing. bam! Drunk lol careful. Also never ever drive. Ever. Goodluck. I miss champagne so bad. But not bad enough to try it. Carbonation is awful for our tummies

I didn't order any alcohol in bars or anywhere while losing as that was the Cardinal sin for our program (doc was also a liver transplant specialist and didn't want any of his bariatric patients coming back onto his transplant table - seriously).

I encourage you to do some research on the connection between alcohalism and Bariatric patients. For some reason, it's not something people seem to want to discuss much around here, but it's a major problem and something you should be on the look out for...

In general, due to bariatric surgery, alcohol tolerance does not change in any way. Those biochemical processes that occur in the body and are associated with the disposal of alcohol remain the same. All the biochemistry associated with the assimilation of alcoholic beverages remains the same as before the operation. But some things are still changing. After any bariatric surgery, alcohol usually enters the small intestine faster and, therefore, is absorbed faster. After the operation, I started getting drunk with a smaller dose and somewhat faster than usual. After that, I had a lot of questions regarding alcohol consumption. And I found all the answers on the platform https://fherehab.com/alcohol/detection-window /.
