What Is the reason I can't have a cup of cofee until I am three weeks post-op? I'm dying for one.

I'm dying to know the answer to this too! coffee is going to be one of the absolute hardest things I will have to give up. Are you talking regular or Decaf? I hate decaf but I guess it will be better than no coffee at all. I have a pantry full of Gevalia too! I'm sick just thinking about it. :(

its because caffine is a diuretic and until you are keeping down all of your fluids you can't have caffine. My Dr said as soon as I could keep down 64ozs i could have my coffee back!

With caffeine being a diuretic, I can only assume it would help with weight loss. (which is good for me) So, if it wont slow your weight loss, or cause adverse effects to the stomach, can't you consume caffeine? I know they say not to because of the dehydration, but it is still questionable to me

I get coffee at the quick stop. I use 1/2 Decaf and 1/2 dark roast. The dark roast is SUPPOSED to be lower in caffeene. The mix makes for a good cup of joe. BTW...I'm 2 1/2 months post op....50 lbs down...50 to go....first 20 lbs were pre op.

coffee is also acidic... this is probably not a good thing for a newly sleeved stomach. I am not allowed to have coffee for 6 months after being sleeved according to my post-op diet instructions... I think I am allowed to have Decaf at 3 months but would rather just skip that! I was also told nothing carbonated... forever and ever. Luckily I am already used to avoiding that with my Lap Band. The coffee think is hard for me but I am trying to cut it out slowly so I don't get the horrible headach post-op.

So I had my first cup of coffee and I am 3 weeks post-op. Big mistake. My stomach was pissed at me. Way to acidic. I had bad reflux all night and my stomach gurgled all night. Had a major diarrhea blowout and was up all night from the caffeine. Won't be drinking coffee any time soon. I did put a scoop of unflavored whey Protein in it to get some protein.

My dr said caffeine was fine could have day after. Just no carbonation until 6 weeks out. So thankful for this.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
