They gave me regular in the hospital. I drink a cup of regular coffee since go. I have not had any issues with it. sugar free Creamer and equal... My dr wasn't as "strict" as some of the dr's people have on here. I can use a straw, drink slightly flattened soda (I don't, but I can) and coffee is fine.

You will see the answer vary across the forum. Some were told never to have caffine again. Others had it the first day. I asked my surgeon at my eight week visit and he said it was fine, but that some patients find that they not tolerate it well. I have been enjoying one cup of regular coffee each morning since.

I have coffee everyday since 2 weeks out. I was ok to have it from day one. No problems with it for me. I use fat free creamer and no sugar so I am not drinking my calories though.

I have never drank coffee before, but I am trying to find creative ways to get my Protein in so I had my hubby go out and buy some Decaf earlier and I am going to try to do a cup in the morning with vanilla whey Protein and some other added sugar free flavors. He bought sugar fee caramel and chocolate Syrup so I'm hoping I can make that a tasty way to get in protein first thing in the mornings. The Protein shakes are so much that I can't get them all down so if I can get a bunch in in a small cup of coffee I'll be thrilled.

I know my mom would die without her coffee so for those of you who really need it, I hope you can make it work.

Like stated earlier, the answers are across the board. I was allowed coffee immediately, while in hospital, but no cream or sugar. Now just over eight months out, I still have at least a cup per day. I add a serving of Protein powder for 27g of Protein. I don't add milk or sugar/sweetener, just Protein Powder.

I have never had an issue with coffee. I don't have reflux or acid either. But I would definitely ask your doctor's office.

I tried ading Protein powder to my coffee and it appeared to curdle! It was lumpy and looked like cottage cheese in my coffee.... is there a trick to adding it to the coffee?

It probably depends on the type of Protein. I know some powder, like unjury brand, cannot be added to very hot liquids or it does get lumpy. The maximum temperature is listed on the label, at least on Unjury brand.

I am currently using Cytosport powder for coffee. I buy it at costco, 27 grams protein for a serving. I let my coffee cool a bit before I add it, not because of the protein texture, but because I use a shaker cup (blender ball) and if the liquid is too hot, the top leaks and makes a mess. My husband pours my coffee into the shaker cup and I let it cool for a while.

I can't stand lumpy, curdled protein!

I've had a cup every morning since 1 week out with no issues. An added benefit is that it helps keep you regular :)

Click makes a proteined coffee. I don't like the taste of coffee so I really don't know much about it. You might check their website though.

Totally agree! I even add two teaspoons of Benefiber to my coffee and Protein.
