How long did everyone wait until you started drinking coffee after surgery? I’ve seen many different things, and I know that not everyone follows the rules so I want to know did it have any ill effects? I’m nervous and hesitant to start back even when I’m cleared because they always warn that it irritates stomachs and stuff.. but I used to drink A LOT of coffee. Now that I’ve weaned myself off I’m not sure what it will be like. Coffee fiends! Let’s hear your experience!

I had decaff the first day of surgery. But the docs are all so different. What does your doc/program allow?

A month before surgery, I switched to decaf...Then went back to Yummy coffee again about a month after surgery. I don't drink that much though. Just a medium cup in the morning....coz it is one of the best parts of waking up 😍

My doctor just okayed on my last appoint. So a little over a month after surgery. Just no cream or sugar with it. I drank some a couple of days ago and today with my Protein Shake and my stomach has been fine so far.

I have fallen in love with coffee again after getting the okay from my surgeon at my 3 month check up since I was getting all of my Water in. I started out slowly with one cup and 2 half and half. Now at 9 months I love drinking it with my Premier Protein shake. On my way to work, I drink 30 oz of water in the morning. When I get to work I have a 50/50 ratio of coffee to Premier. I no longer use half and half. I like the warm creamy vanilla taste but adore the caramel mix! And I don't have to worry about the acid in my stomach.

I switched to Decaf before surgery and then lost my taste for it completely after surgery. I used to drink about 4 cups a day. I guess I am afraid of the acid and any irritation it might cause. I had a Barretts polyp removed prior to surgery - a pre cancerous growth related to acid reflux, so I try to avoid anything that will increase acid.

Now professors at the University of Nottingham in the UK are saying coffee is good for you and may even help you lose weight better and sooner! Guess on the internet, you can find what you want and sometimes even what you need!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
