Decaf coffee was on my tray the day after surgery , tried then and was no problem

Two weeks post OP I stopped by wholefoods juice bar and realized the only thing I could have was coffee. So I ordered an espresso to mix with premier caramel Protein Shake but I Forgot to order decaf and felt fluttery like my my heart rate was raised. Never again.

And I just don't love it like I used to...

Now I just make Maxwell house decaf at home, when I want the taste of coffee. I won't even bother to spring for the good stuff anymore... Because decaf

Have fun!

Worth noting that caffeine is a diuretic, surgeons fear dehydration early out which can be worse than the initial surgery due to the complications it causes. I would speak to them again and confirm your options...

Been very aware of it...I also like to drink lots of Water, so no issues with having caffeine for me even at that early stage.

But with that said, I agree with you for any others in their early stages, to get confirmation from their docs.

I drink decaf every morning . . . yum!! The funny thing is, I didn't really start drinking it until after surgery. It just tastes so much better now that I don't have a taste for soda or extremely sweet drinks!

I drink decaf coffee with splenden and creamer every day. No issue. I believe it depends on the instruction from your Nut and Dr. We were advise not to drink any drinks with caffine, no jucie no sparkling stuff. I have to have my coffee every day or I'll go nuts LOL.
