Geez... it looks like I am obsessed with food issues....but....here's a new one..lol.

We are going on a tour of a winery this week and I just wondered if it is ok to have a glass of wine? The only meds I am on are Prevacid and Toprol for blood pressure.

Just remember, when a normal person drinks they get dehydrated, so we have to drink more water when we do drink alcohol.

Have fun!

Wine does make my output more watery, but that's fine. As Ohio said, drink lots of water to stay hydrated and enjoy :)

OK...LOL! I never did drink much but used to like an occasional glass of white wine.

Summerstorm...lol. I don't worry but just want to be cautious. I certainly will take my water along. Do you ever put your water bottles in the freezer? Someone told me the plastic can give you cancer if you do that .

Christine,

Get out and enjoy life! Eat and drink what you please; there isn't anything that you should not do. If you are always carrying water I would switch from carrying plastic to using an aluminum container like a Zigg. Much safer for long term use. And they come in all kinds of pretty designs with various lids.

Gin is fine, vodka is fine, rum is fine, wine is fine, tequila is fine, peppermint shnapps is fine, rye is fine, bourbon is fine, Basically anything without alot of carbonation! Drink a glass of water between each "alcoholic" drink to stay hydrated.

We don't have ABC in Michigan. We do go to Coco Beach Florida for February and March. Which ABC do you have in mind? We like ABC.

OMG - I love this thread! You have made me laugh so hard reading each response!! Even though my colostomy is temporary, I had these same issues in the first weeks following the initial surgery. My surgeon said most anything was fine "in moderation" but I was concerned with the "what ifs" and wouldn't eat or drink because I wasn't sure how it was going to affect me. Finally, I gave myself permission to just live my life! WOW - has it been lots more fun!!
