I drink caffeinated coffee every day. Was told early on by my dr that as long as I get my fluids and Protein in each day I can have caffeinated coffee.

I have coffee basically whenever I want to but I am not a heavy drinker. I did hold off until 2 weeks post op because my stomach was irritated and acidy even with a PPI. My thought is try a little, if it is not well received then try in a week or so. Basically it's how you try out a new food.

I drink coffee almost everyday, tea as well. As long as you hydrate enough, I don't think it's a problem.

Dropped down to half caf then Decaf prior to surgery, then decaf, half caf and regular coffee post surgery as my stomach healed.

Decaf could also be an irritant due to the acidity for some people.

Follow your plan.

^^^^^ This. Follow your plan. I was told to go completely decaf prior to surgery. So I did. Once I was post-op, they said it was fine to go back to caffeine coffee if I wanted. I drink a couple of cups in the morning, and often several cups of decaf throughout the day.

coffee hydrates people as well as Water does, so there is no need not to count it as fluids, or try to make up for it or something else.

Probably 75% of my liquid intake is full test black coffee and has been for years, so if there were some sort of problem with caffeine and dehydration I should be a desiccated piece of dead leathery skin by now but I am perfectly healthy.

Coffee is acidic and can be hard on a sleeved stomach, especially a newly sleeved stomach, so that alone should be reason for caution, though.

I had to be off caffeine pre-op, but the post-op caffeine was left up to me once I could get enough liquids in!

I reduced my coffee intake from 5-6 strong coffee a day down to 1-2 piccolo a day post operatively. I'm week 3 now.
