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.

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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
