Alcohol

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

I am currently off all meds. Can I drink wine or alcohol at this point? Thanks 

 

Why not?

Thank you 

 

     You definitely can. It will affect your output, and can break your barriers down faster. Best to start in moderation, and close to home at first. I love a nice glass of whiskey now and then. ❤️

 

Off your meds?  Hell, that's the best time.  Just do it in moderation so you don't get stupid.  Thumb's up.

Kindred Spirits 🥰🤗💖

 

I've had one glass of red wine since I got out of the hospital and it was delicious. Moderation as always is key, I have yet to have another but it's been over a week so I think I'll be picking up a nice red to sip on over the next month or so!

I love a nice Woodford Reserve occasionally, haven't had one since the ileostomy though

I gotta be careful though, brown liquor makes me mean, I do not need help with that!

     I don't know why, but this made me laugh. I can't imagine you mean. 😂 I'll have to try your suggestion. I have a 20 year single malt scotch that I'm loving right now. Fortunately, it was a gift. A bit rich for my blood. 😉

Woodford Reserve isn't cheap but it's not Pappy Van Winkle expensive either

     I will definitely look into it. 🥰

Gabapentin does nothing for me, in fact made me feel worse. Some folks get a lot of relief from it, I wasn't one of those people though. Fluid retention was also an issue

 

Had a couple small glasses of red wine last night, it was good and no ill effects! 🍷🍷

 

I would say start with just a couple of drinks and see how it goes. We are all so different with foods & drinks. On my first stomaversery I got so drunk my friends told me afterwards that I was talking to a coat rack thinking it was a person 🙈 😂 No idea how I emptied my bag that night but I guess it was just like second nature! And now that I survived that night I can go out and socialise with my friends with confidence ☺️

But don’t forget to drink plenty of water so you don’t get dehydrated 💧

I hope the coat rack wasn’t talking back. 😂

I read that beer and wine (grapes} are not good for an ileostomy. When I had wine I had a lot of liquid output.  I enjoy a white russian on occasion!

Gabapentin is an effective medication for me too!

     Mmm, White Russians are delicious! I love a good, dark beer. Bubbles can definitely be problematic. ❤️
