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.

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?

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

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.

FitVine is great! I am 11 months out and I drink with no issues. Of course, it will slow down your progress. It can keep you from drinking sufficient Water, has a lot of sugar still and are empty calories.

Drinking should be an occasional activity and shouldn't be dranken enough to affect your weight loss progress.

I think any extra, empty calories are not really a part of healthy weight loss, even occasionally. People shouldn't go down the slippery slope of one drink a week doesn't impact it, so I'll keep adding more. Was just trying to make sure people are cautious.

They have several varieties. The Chardonney and Cabernet-sauvinon are my favorites.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
