I like a glass of wine ect every now and then..I am on a long stent of flagyl for now so no alcohol for me..If I am flaring to the point the alcohol causes an acute burning sensation, I know not to drink for awhile..It will give me diarrhea the next day no mattter what..The holidays are coming and I would like a glass now and then at holiday parties and family events..I will have to play it by ear I guess..I am still trying to figure out how I long I need to cease the Flagyl before indulging..I have to make an appearance at the inlaws at Thanksgiving.
I personally cannot drink hardly at all. I use to be able to drink a lot, without feeling sick. The last couple of times I have drank, i got real sick before the night was over, and i wasnt even drunk and didnt drink a whole lot either. Im thinking this has to do with what ever is going on with my tummy, and intestines and such. I have decided to not drink again, oh and the next day I pay for it as well, bad bad bad.
I would also recommend that you talk to your doctor, just in case.......
Really interesting how different folks have reactions to different alcoholic beverages!! So, I saw my gastroenterologist and he's really happy with my surgery results . . . I am now only on 6 Asacol per day and Humira so that my Crohns will not flare (I have no symptoms right now). I had one glass of white wine last night and no problem!!! So, I am a happy camper. I do know that before my surgery I would have bad reactions to my Bombay Sapphire martinis . . . . so, no gin for me (darn).
