Hello all. I guess I’ve got to say that I’m one of the lucky ones. I had my GB removed about 3 yrs ago when I was 40. I didn’t drink right after the surgery, but one year later, I was consuming as much after as I was before. I don’t drink every day, but can consume say, 12 beers on a weekend night and don’t really notice any effects. Wine or hard liquor don’t seem to bother me either. I do have the ABSOLUTE need to go to the bathroom in the AM right after breakfast, but that’s the case regardless of any alchohol consumed the night before or not. I did need to have the 12 inch cut surgery to remove mine as they couldn’t remove it laproscopically. Not sure if it’s tougher on my liver than before…… Any thoughts out there??? Thanks.
