Yes, still drinking coffee. My program says 1-2 cups per day is ok. For a couple of weeks post op I didn't want it but after that I drank Decaf for a couple of weeks (only because I bought it thinking I couldn't have caffeine). I usually stick with one cup per day just because that's what I had cut down to long before I started this journey.

In my 3 week post-op material, it says to avoid caffeine, however I have not read any strict requirements following the soft food phase. I have been drinking Decaf and, for me, I don't really notice any difference. I never suffered withdrawals during my pre-op so I am actually fine with sticking to decaf. However, I don't think I will strictly limit caffeine after the soft food phase either.

Yes, I have been back to coffee for several weeks. I'm close to 3 month post-op.

This is from the ASMBS website:

Q: Do I need to avoid caffeine after bariatric surgery? A: Caffeine fluids have been shown to be as good as any others for keeping you hydrated. Still, it is a good idea to avoid caffeine for at least the first thirty days after surgery while your stomach is extra sensitive. After that point, you can ask your surgeon or dietitian about resuming caffeine. Remember that caffeine often comes paired with sugary, high-calorie drinks, so be sure you’re making wise beverage choices.

I waited a month then started drinking it again.

And I have attempted Decaf once or twice, with the strictures and jejunal ulcerations I have, even that sets me off. Although my stoma is getting better there will probably be gastritis lingering, the sorrow and pain, for me, NOT WORTH IT!

I drink coffee daily and have no problems. I did wait until about 3 months post op to drink it. Cold brew coffee is less acidic, so I drink that. Regular coffee tends to give me heartburn.

Yup - still drinking coffee but, only one or two cups a day. I think the docs want you to limit caffeine because it’s a diuretic (it makes you pee) and they don’t want you to get dehydrated.

Yep. It was on my list for week 1, but I drink significantly less because:

1. I dislike artificial sweeteners

2. I have to use non-dairy Creamer for now. I'm a half-n-half girl.

I drink coffee like it's going out of style! Probably more than I should. A LOT MORE. But my blood pressure is 115/60 and heart rate is 45-55... It does effect my sleep sometimes, but I cant find a Decaf that I love.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
