“Hello! My husband had his gall bladder removed in Oct. 2006 at the age of 31. He has had the normal adjustments to learning what he can and cannot eat. He has dealt with that well. But, there is one aspect of “”this new life”” that he is having a hard time with.

He has had a hard time finding anything to drink (alcohol). He has tried wine, beer, vodca, rum, and not keen on trying anything else right now do to the aftermath. It either gives him acid reflux or nasea/vomiting and sometimes both. The last bad episode was when he tried the voda. He was able to have 2 regular drinks, and then he was abliterated. He then sobered up by being up all night vomiting. Before his gall bladder was removed he very rarely got drunk. He is 6′ 3″”, and it normally would have taken alot more than 2 drinks for him to be abliterated like that, so it barely ever happened. We have just always enjoyed having drinks together every now and then. Now, it’s never. He tries, but then he dearly pays for it. The vodca situation was the only time he actually ended up getting inebriated, all of the other times he just gets so sick.

Has anyone else had this problem? Do you have any recommendations? Or should he just stop trying all together?

Thank you in advance for your help!
