Gastric Bypass surgery and alcohol
After a person has gastric bypass surgery, the effect of alcohol is greatly increased. There are medical reasons for it outlined in the article linked below. Basically people who slammed a glass of wine before surgery had the expected .02 BAC level. Six months after the surgery the average for the same glass of wine was .08. In other words one glass after the surgery can result in producing a per se DUI. Be aware!
