Afftects of drinking alcohol after a Transhiatal Surgery

 I was in an interesting conversation the other day with a person who has received Gastric By-pass surgery and they show me an article that mentioned a paper that was written about how the surgery had changed the results of using a breathalyzer to deterime the changes in blood alcohol readings in a person who had had by-pass surgery.  Having a Transhiatal Esophagectomy like I had is slightly different but I would think since they remove the esophageal sphincter valve, it would effect acohol readings even more.  This made me curious as the whether there was any information available to substantiate this.  If so, I would think that those who are in remission should be very carefull.  In the article it said that after 6 month post surgery, a 5 oz glass of red wine could make your reading as much as .08BAC which is over the limit in most states. Any one who can direct me to some sources that could look into this would be appreciated.  Here is the link to the article they mentioned:
