Does anyone have a post op restriction on coffee? My nutritionist advised 2 cups per day, but I usually do 3 or 4. It's how I get my Protein Shake in. It's too sweet otherwise. Is this just concern over dehydration or tummy stretch??

The concern after surgery is dehydration, but that really only occurs when you have several cups a day. I would just make sure you’re getting enough fluids outside of coffee, so adding in a cup of Water throughout the day to offset the possible dehydration. I’m on week three post-op and I can say the caffeine hits me a little more strongly so you may not need your usual 3 to 4 cups.

My binder says...........

"Caffeinated drinks are gastric irritants and are dehydrating. Caffeine should not be consumed unless and until you are achieving your fluid goals. Limit postoperative caffeine intake to 8oz a day."

I was allowed one cup a day as long as I offset it with an extra cup of fluids.

For every cup of coffee, I try to follow it up with 12 oz of Water.

My surgeon banged on the teakettle about no coffee, but I started drinking it again about 6 weeks out. It's for everyone's safety... I prefer not to lead the 11:00 news...

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
