There is something to do with the way out intestines have been re routed (so to speak) and the malabsorbtion of Alcohol
only a little goes directly into your bloodstream now but also it wears off very quickly.One of the ladies in my group who was never much of a drinker pre bypass can now drink an entire bottle of wine and half a bottle of brandy before she goes to bed and feel okay burt cant stop she describes the feeling as just craving more and she needs more to get the same effect as like i said it wears off quickly.
There is a huge amount of research going on at the moment on ”tranference of addictions” from food to alcohol-especially in previous low or non drinkers( as they were pre surgery)
this is very worrying
what I am trying to say is sure an odd glass AFTER YOUR FIRST YEAR is okay
but it can so easily escalate due to the changes in your system and the malabsorbtion effect of this surgery on our new intestines- please ,please don’t think I am being a ”kill joy” but this is way too serious a topic and not enough is known about it yet.
