When can i drink coffee again?

I'll ask at my recheck next week but was anxious to know! I just want maybe 1 small cup of half decaf in the am.

You can probably glean some information from the post two below yours...

It's very individual to each Bariatric Center though.

Every practice is different. My Surgeon never had us restrict coffee or even have to have decaf. The only thing they said is you couldn't count more than 2 cups towards your 64oz. Obviously they wanted you to have more than just coffee. I got coffee day 1 on my tray in hospital.

I don't think I would have made my 64 oz min liquids without decaf.

My nut said I could have all the coffee I wanted in the world.. as long as it was decaf. Mostly due the reason that caffeine can dehydrate your body. And if I drank normal coffee I could only count half of what I drank as liquid. But with decaf, I can count it all. She even told me that I could use normal creamer just don't go crazy with it. Sadly I also have to use normal because the SF ones were giving me such horrendous gas that would not go away even with walking and gas-x I just decided to go with one that was only slightly higher in calories and carbs.

But.. to be honest, I mostly drink coffee because it helps me have bowel movements (TMI i know but no real polite way to say this)

I completely agree with the BM comment. Without coffee I am just not sure I would go. Maybe I rely on it too much. I guess I will be finding out after surgery :)

I was not allowed caffeine for the first 6 months. I remember my first caffeine. I went to a tea shop and drank a pot of Asam black tea. I have never been so amped in my life.

I was told "never"!!

Alcohol and coffee are big no-no's for my doctor.

My surgery is Monday and regular coffee is listed on all my sample meal plans post-op! I don't think I could quit coffee.
