Alcohol after Gastric Bypass

Patient

Q: Hello, I am a recovering alcoholic and I have bought a breathalizer as a way to help my husband and I get through trust issues. I had a relapse 2 days ago where I had approx 3 glasses of wine. Is it possible to still have alcohol in my system? I also had gastric bypass surgery.....which is when my addiction started (went from food to wine) and I lost 100 pounds. I currently weigh 134lbs. I take 200mg zoloft, 10,000 of biotin, B12, multiviatims with clacium and iron. Please help!

Symptoms:  Breathalizer showed alcohol in my system 0.05 and I haven't had a drink since my relapse 2 days ago.
