LOL! I love this question. I had a buddy that had this surgery and he liked to drink! He did not drink a drop for 6 months and doesn't drink much now but does a tad on occasions. Good luck! I am having my surgery on 12/16.

Hi All,

Im new to the group, I have my surgery planned for the 12th jan 2021. So excited but nervous! Anyone who has had the op have you all given up alcohol?

I gave up drinking about 1 yr before I decide to have surgery. I still don't drink (except once in 2018 I was served 30ml of wine instead of grape juice during Kiddush 😩) but I don't miss drinking.

I definitely reduced my alcohol intake during weight loss phase (maybe 5 or so the entire time, and not even full servings).

I didn't drink that much prior to my surgery and have not had anything since. I'm about 2.5 months post. I figure I'll try having a drink in a few more months and see how that goes.

Generally surgeons will tell you to hold off on alcohol consumption for 6months to a year. I'm 10 months post op and haven't touched alcohol since long before my surgery (haven't had alcohol in about two years).
