I am sorry to hear all your experiences, I could always drink a fair bit before the operation, afterwards I got reflux, still do at times when I drink but some hot chips usually fixes it, and I can drink life a supe fish now, it used to take 6 full strength beers to get me slightly jolly now its like 12. I also dont seem to get stupid with it either given the amounts I can now consume, has anyone else had this experience?
