I have just had 5 boozy days away with friends. I was careful not to overdo it but got a bit tipsy most days and had no pain. I diluted my drinks well with a diet mixer and drank slower than everyone else. One evening I had a glass of Prosecco that gave me awful reflux, so I have crossed that one off my list.

Try a different drink or have a glass of milk or a piece of cheese before the whisky and see if that helps

Interesting.

As someone that until my surgery last month, enjoyed a nice cigar and a good bourbon once or twice a month, my Surgeon has already given me the green light to resume an occassional cigar. But I do intend to pair that with a small glass of Bourbon after a year.

What kind of whiskey are you drinking? I am sure you know the varients are distilled using differnet mashes. For example, Scoth is primary barley, Bourbon & Tennesse uses cornmash, most Irish use blended grains, and of course Rye Whiskey is made from Rye mash. Not mention all of the different distilling techiniques and use of copper or oak barrells. In other words...a lot variance.

So I'm wondering if you tried different types and still ended up with the same issue? Are you drinking neat or with water/mixer? With a chaser?

Maybe a direct irritant effect of concentrated alcohol on your stomach lining? I do drink alcohol (one year out from my sleeve) but it's mainly wine (11% as opposed to the 40% in spirits) and luckily I haven't had any ill effects.

Also, as Old Salt says - new food intolerances aren't uncommon after bariatric surgery. Might be worth changing around the type of whiskey that you drink to check whether another might suit you better!

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
