Hi. I'd take it easy. See what happens. To much increases my out put so I need to watch out for dehydration. If you're on meds check with the pharmacist to see if that's a problem. Flagyl and alcohol DO NOT mix.
Have fun.

I'm still in some pain and on 2 different pain pills, so I deff won't be mixing anything. I haven't drank in years due to my crohns and having to run to the bathroom after one drink. I just want to go have fun with her. Lol. I'll take it easy, thanks for the advice. Hainman, mine has been filling like a hot air balloon too. Lol. But mine's cause of it being gassy as hell.

Wait until you're fully recovered before you take up drink again and then start slowly. Once you're in remission again and as long as your medicine allows it drink to your heart's content. I've had my ileostomy for 7 years now and I drink all the time. I second hainman as far as whiskey is concerned. My favorite happens to be Laphroaig single malt 10 year old.
