I am so relieved to find that others are experiencing the alcohol intolerance as well. I had my gallbladder removed september of 2005. I don’t drink alcohol very often, and when I drink, I only have 2 drinks over the course of an entire evening. Since my surgery, I cannot handle even 2 drinks. I am feeling totally sober one minute and the next minute I am blackout drunk, cannot stand up, heavy vomiting. My hangover will last 3-4 days with severe nausea and vomiting, numb, tingly arms and legs, headache from He**. I don’t trust myself to have more than a couple of sips for fear of my husband having to take me to the hospital. I am embarassed to talk to my doctor about it because the easy answer he will give me is to avoid alcohol all together. I am only 29 years old and wish I could have a drink once in awhile for special occasions.
