  1. Gastric Bypass Surgery is a weight loss surgery. Digestive tract undergoes changes and needs time to heal and get adjusted to it. Hence, alcohol should be completely avoided for first 6 months of the surgery.

My surgeon recommended that all you have to do is avoid the first year and if later in the follow up all is good you definitely can consume alcohol. All they need to do is to keep a close eye on how their body reacts after consuming a beverage of choice.
