I am very interested in anyone who can comment on the use of alcohol after gastric bypass surgery.
My husband had the surgery two years ago. His alcohol abuse has spiraled out of control. He can consume an unbelievable amount of alcohol and has absolutely no control over how much he drinks.
What are the health risks and does anyone know of any articles that have been written concern the use of alcohol and gastric bypass.
Thank you for any reply.
