There's a lot of debate on the acidity thing. Honestly it comes down to how you tolerate it. I was allowed Decaf coffee as well right away if I wanted it. Generally the concern with coffee is with the caffeine. It can act as a diuretic and since the early days can be so difficult to get fluids down they don’t want you peeing anymore than you need to! But again, there are a lot of arguments to the diuretic side of caffeine. From personal experience the only issue I had was transitioning back to regular coffee from decaf. I am much more sensitive to getting caffeine jitters since surgery. I had to do ¾ decaf to ¼ regular for a while, then went to ½ and ½, and up from there. I’m a year out and actually thinking of going back to half and half because I love my coffee but it doesn’t love me back so much.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
