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.

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        Fun! Why not?

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
