Alcohol after Gastric Sleeve



Recommended Posts

I can't find an answer on how long to wait after a Gastric Sleeve to have a drink. I've seen answers from one month to six months to never. I will speak to my nutritionist tomorrow, but I was looking for a quicker answer because of a work event this evening.

Your doctor or nut will most likely tell you never. But there are several people on this site that have had alcohol with no ill effects. I myself have had a small amount at 2 months out and was fine. I think its a very individual thing.

My doctor said never but I've had a few sips at 6 months post op with no issues.

I'm too late to comment before your event tonight but wanted to share anyway. I've had drinks periodically since month one post surgery. And I've had no issues. I enjoy imbibing every once in awhile.

Um you can go to an event without drinking... You could be pregnant or allergic or just healthy...

I’m 10 days away from bypass but at some point in the future would like to have some wine. What type of alcohol did you have?

I know that. That's what I usually do, but we were toasting the healthy birth of a Coworker's early baby, and I thought that I may want to have a glass of wine. I didn't. I'll wait a few more months.

Vodka based cocktails such as vodka and cranberry.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
