Espresso w/premier shake Post op



Recommended Posts

I typically have 2 shots of espresso with my premier shake over ice for the past 3 years had a revision and wondering if anyone has had a bad side effect with trying a shot of espresso with their premier shake. Just wondering just had my revision 8/3 doing really good but already missing it the Protein Shake is to thick without it thank you

I'm 2 weeks post-op and I've struggled drinking anything with a significant amount of caffeine AND dairy. This has included the Premier Protein latte drink, chai tea with milk, and coffee with a vanilla shake poured in. I've been able to drink cold brew coffee and plain green tea without discomfort. But ofc your mileage may vary, and I'm under the impression that these intolerances will dissipate further out from the surgery.

WOW what a great idea! I do not see how that would be a problem, Since week two i can down a diet coke and caffeine. Just tried your idea but only one shot and it was no issue for a sleever. now two shots and i would be climbing the walls.

I think we all react to foods and chemicals differently, my suggestion is start slow and see how it goes. you gotta live life so a shot is not the end of the world to me

I think you should ask your surgeon. I had RNY and was told I should avoid coffee and caffeine in general for at least six months (which I did). I'm now drinking coffee with no issues. My surgeon also advised that I should not have carbonated beverages ever.

I’ve been having Premier Protein Cafe Latte (which has the caffeine equivalent of 1 cup of coffee) since month 3 with no issues. Amazon went waaaay up on the price since it became so popular so i now do as you suggest, any Premier Protein Shake and add a single espresso shot. No shakes, jitters, etc. I believe having our caffeine WITH a Protein significantly helps all that. Lovely way to start my engine so I can head out and walk 40 minutes each morning in this always wonderful Florida heat🌞!

Good luck and make it fun and happy!😄

ask your surgeon. Some are fine with caffeine after surgery and some are not. Some are OK with it once you're further out, and some are OK with it but only in limited quantities. I was not allowed caffeine until I was six months out, but surgeons' opinions really seem to be all across the board with this.

I dump espresso or coffee in my Protein Shakes all the time, but I'm five years out. I didn't do this the first six months, much as I wanted to...

My daily Breakfast is a Premier Protein shake mixed with a Starbucks nitro cold brew. Yummy! My team is fine with it, as long as I get in my daily amount of non caffeinated fluids. As a plus, the strong coffee every morning helps me avoid the constipation issue many of us have post op :)

Thank u everyone for your replies I truly appreciate it! As a sleever I really had no issues but now that I have the RNY as a result of a hernia repair I crave this drink. I will try it soon. I usually walk to my coffee shop get my espresso with ice put my Protein shake and come back it’s a 4 mile walk round trip so I get my exercise in as well! THANK U!!!

I buy cold brew iced coffee and add 1/2 cup fairlife milk and some no sugar caramel Syrup. I read the cold brew had less acid than regular coffee and so far it sits just fine.

you're right - cold brew has less acid. A lot of people who have issues with reflux can drink it without problems....
