When if ever are you allowed a cup of coffee?



Recommended Posts

The only thing I have cheated on was a cup of instant coffee with Protein Powder added at 7 weeks out. My Doc says never, so don't tell her. What about you?

My doctor allowed coffee at 4 weeks. Regular with caffeine!

my doc only allows Decaf coffee to avoid any dehydration that could be caused by the caffeine

At 8 weeks I was told I could again have coffee. I drink 2 to 3 cups a day and haven't had any problems. I think they try to limit how much you have because it does dehydrate and a lot of people add cream and sugar which can lead to trouble. I add truvia, not problems.

So far (3-weeks post-op) I am not allowed. Caffeine dehydrates and I'm struggling with getting all the fluids in that I need (my belly feels so full!). I may never go back to regular coffee. At this point I've not had caffeine for nearly a month and caffeine has it's downfall anyway. I love the taste of coffee so I may be on the Decaf train ;)

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
