I’ve read that you can drink decaffinated tea or coffee after surgery but not caffinated tea or coffee. Is this true? I drink caffeine everyday, so if this is true, I’m going to be having a hard time with that. What did you all do to get through caffeine withdrawal?

If I remember correctly, I totally cheated and drank it anyway.  I’m not advising anyone to do that though.  I bet if you slowly wean yourself off it now you’ll have fewer side effects to deal with.  Just cut back a little day by day until you’re no longer relying on caffeine.

I remember cheating some, too. I don’t think that’s the best answer. I think Roo’s idea is a good one – cut back a little at a time now until you’re not consuming caffeine at all. I know it’ll be very difficult, but I have faith that you can do it!

Yes, caffeine is a no-no. I believe decreasing the amount day by day is the best approach if you’re so used to it. If it’s energy that you feel lacking, maybe adding more proteins can help you last longer.

Have you started the detox process?

So honestly it has to stop, the caffeine, because it creates increased blood loss in surgery. It’s important the reasons why & you also can raise Your medical risks, yourself. Do it the right way, they should explain it (Diet and reasoning)way better with your surgeons, but we all could also ask ‘why’ as we go thru this. I’m glad you are asking tho.

In my opinion, Sauna and Water are your best defense in withdrawl, OR/AND start removing caffeine 3 wks prior to make it less concentrated and not immediate removal. Drink copious water to rehydrate yourself. Broad percentile of humans actually walk around dehydrated in life. (suggest: 1 gallon 110oz.) Hit the sauna and get a lymph node massage in your armpits,neck, etc. Push that toxin out with a medically helpful massage. Follow with water, to flush it out. It is not medically advisable to do greater than 15min 2x a day. Follow with a nice body scrub. Help those pores and clean yourself so they can breathe.

You are preparing for an invasion to your body with advance notice. I treated it as such. It helped me have the easiest surgery I could get for a 61BMI.

I know you will do great. Day 3& 4 are typically the worst you will feel into the pre-op diet. After that, your body is rid of ick so to speak. The pancreas stops sending out Insulin, and diabetics will actually feel way better at this point (if u need to, of course, raise your carrying of glucose gel or tabs for control, but no sugar on prep diet) The rest of us, will feel the flu symptoms dissapate.

I stopped drinking coffee and caffeinated drinks 3 weeks prior to surgery. The first day I had a terrible headache, but once that passed I was good. I drink decaf tea, and if I feel like I need a cup of coffee I just drink decaf.
