How soon after surgery have you started to drink coffee?


24 posts in this topic

I'm curious how soon after surgery have some of you drank coffee again? I love my coffee. I don't drink it all day, maybe two cups at most a day, but am sad that this might be it between my delicious warm beverage and my morning hands. Also, if you drink coffee, what do you use instead of half n half, or do you use half n half still?

For a gastric sleeve it's six weeks and unfortunately it's decaf.

The decaf part isn't bad. We're not having caffeine for so long, it's probably good to not reintroduce it. Who knows. From what I hear and keep reading, the taste buds change and I might not even like it or want it anymore.

My surgeon allows 1 caffeine-containing beverage (8 oz) and an unlimited amount of decaf beverages starting 3 days post-op. I'm still at least a month out from surgery at this point (don't have a firm date, yet), however, I have been working on weening myself off of caffeine for other health-related reasons. I likely will stick with decaf from now on.

Caffeine can effect healing and cause other issues after surgery. I am now 10 weeks post-op (sleeve) and am allowed one caffeine drink a day. Which I don't have. It's just no part of my life now. I drink decaf coffee. I use premier protien shake for my creamer. Works perfect for me.

I'm interested in premier for creamer. Is there a flavor you use? Do you add the powered or a premixed shake?

I've been on decaf for about a month now. Finally got used to it. It was the pits in the beginning. Biggest headache ever. No point in introducing again for me. I like the suggestion of using Protein Drinks as creamer. I think I'll try that this weekend.

Vanilla is great in coffee!

I'm 8 weeks out from sleeve surgery and have been cheating with coffee. I either make it at home, very weak or get half caff when out. At home, I usually will mix up 4 ozs of almond milk with 1 Scoop of Protein Powder and mix that in with my 12 ozs of coffee and its great! It acts just like a flavored creamer and lets me work in a bit of Protein, as well. I don't have it every day but on the days that I do, I really up my Fluid intake.
