I broke the rules over memorial day weekend, and did not have any trouble with vodka and Water with a lemon or orange. I still ate a meal and waited 30 minutes to start to drinking. I got tipsy faster, but I also cannot drink at the same pace as before so it self-regulated for me. But after a few, it is a lot easier to justify breaking the rules!

There was a noticeable impact on my weight too, so it isn't something I will do on a regular basis...

I followed the directions of my surgeon and the dietician pretty strictly in the beginning, and at my 6 month post op, they both commented that it was not typical. And since anything sweet or starchy seems to make me sick still, I have not went back to old habits.

I have a job that keeps me moving most of the day too--nothing strenuous-- just walking between buildings on campus. I do a lot of routine emailing/texting from my phone while walking. instead of my desk. Four Protein centric meals and a shake each day and avoid snacking (though I discovered freeze dried apples recently).

I’m 11 months post op and started drinking about two months ago. No more then 2-3 glasses of red wine. Haven’t tried anything else. I have found out that 1) using a small wine glass and 2) adding an ice cube or two helps. The small glass slows me down and the ice cube cools it down and waters it down. After the first glass, which is probably a half glass, I’m feeling pretty tipsy. I did have three mimosas a few months back and ended up sleeping all afternoon which kissed my wife off since it was Mother’s Day... it certainly is a different impact post op.

I can get drunk and sober several times in one night. Sometimes I’m drunk off 1 drink but I sober up in a crazy fast rate. Keep most of my drinks low in alcohol sugars and diet or calorie free mixers.

Addiction transfer is real. My sister is in AA and my uncle was a hardcore drunk so I’m mindful. Luckily, zero issues with my drinking habits. I was actually sober from 2007 (17) until 2012. I didn’t really NEED it but I was going through a weird time as I became bipolar. Once I got that sorted and took an addition class at UCLA I realized I’m a normie!

Having this surgery leaves you vulnerable to death by alcohol poisoning . Think alcohol enema . Be careful , just sayin.
