Decaf coffee should be fine. My doc even lets us have regular, as long as it's not excessive! It's not easy to find a great tasting decaf...I had one at Starbucks and I usually hate their coffee, but it was a Pike Place decaf and it tasted pretty good-maybe because it was my first cup of coffee following surgery!

I've started drinking it a lot these last few weeks with no issues that I can tell.. It helps me with my energy levels and curbs my hunger at times :)

I just buy the instant stuff from the supermarkets not like Starbucks so no sugar..

it seems like I could start drinking Decaf fairly quickly after surgery - I may have been about a month out (I had to wait six months before I could drink caffeinated). Some surgeons aren't as restrictive - some let you drink both right away.

So how come some doc says coffe ok others no??? does that make sense?

If coffe is ok why not for all and/or vice versa

My doc has no issues with coffee. My go to Breakfast every morning is a Starbucks nitro brew mixed in with my Premier Protein shake.

I find the Cafe Latte Slimfast Protein Shakes make you feel just like you’ve had coffee, and helps to up your Protein intake . I do drink de caff coffee too but not a lot . It’s always been on the paperwork I was given from the hospital as a can have .

I drank coffee days after my surgery - doc said it was fine. There’s only so much I can give up and I love my coffee.

Some docs say no to it because caffeinated beverages can have a mild diuretic effect ( although more recent studies show this is less than previously thought). Mine said as long as I’m getting my daily allotment of non caffeinated beverages my daily coffee is just fine.

Because there is no gold standard.

Recommendations regarding diet differ from country to country and from hospital to hospital. Experience based, not evidence based.
