Can I still drink alcohol after surgery?

We advise no alcohol for the first 3 months after surgery. From then on, alcohol intake should be limited as it may cause weight to regain, dumping syndrome, increase your blood alcohol reading and may displace the absorption of other important vitamins and minerals. Be mindful that alcohol is absorbed much quicker due to decrease stomach capacity which means you will feel the effects of alcohol a lot more quickly.
