Hello All! Did anyone NOT give up coffee after gastric bypass surgery? My intentions are to give it up prior so I get the headaches out of the way before surgery, but was wondering if anyone had stories of NOT giving up coffee.< /p>

Thanks!

I didn't give up coffee because my surgeon said coffee is fine for me. I have cut way back because it doesn't taste the same to me. I'll hit a Cappuccino a few times a week tho...

I didn't drink coffee for the first month and a half. Now I drink caffeine free at home but omg my new addiction is almond milk lattes! Not a lot of sugar and it's healthy! I make it at home sometimes but it's so much better from Starbucks hahaha

I gave it up for 6 weeks after surgery to let myself heal but my surgeon gave me the all clear after that. I drink it daily

My question is are any of you using anything in your coffee? Before all this prep for surgery I used full fat half & half (which makes for the best cup of coffee), but now I haven't. It is ok to use the sugar free Creamers? They pretty don't have much of anything in them like calories, carbs or sugars.

Also, does any one know if you can chew sugar free gum?

i wouldn't risk chewing gum, if you swallowed it by mistake you would need surgery to get it out. i know some are super careful but honestly you don't know what could happen and it's not worth the risk.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
