Just wondering if any of you drink coffee. I like to have a cup or two with breakfast and have never had any problems from it.

I finally gave up caffeine almost a year ago but still drink decaf coffee every a.m. Actually it is more like a latte -- we have an espresso machine and make our own every a.m. I have given up Pepsi, and all caffeine drinks. Now I notice a lot more watery stools when I drink caffeine.

I thought the coffee was bothering me since my last surgery, but learned through trial and error that it was the milk I added. Now I use CoffeeMate, and I'm glad to have my coffee back. Tea is okay, but not the same.

Years ago I gave up caffeine because of fibrocystic disease, but I found it made no difference at all. I started drinking it again after about 3 years, and have seen no change.

I don't drink soda, the carbonation doesn't mix well with an ostomy.

I deserve one bad habit, and mine is coffee ;0)

I haven't drank anything carbonated since my surgery, but I am/was a Pepsi drinker. Right now all I'm drinking is coffee in the morning and water during the day.

I love my coffee, I drink it hot black and often. Hot and cold too. But I don't think that you can really equate coffee and tea. Tea has so many variations and all of them (except the ersatz flavours) are delightful. Lapsang
souchong and Earl Grey are my favorites and Chamomile ranks far below everything else. I don't notice any effect on my bag from drinking caffinated beverages. , but I do avoid coffee at bedtime, because it does increase my iinsomnia

Arundinaria yeah
When there are no more choices, tha decision is easy!

So glad that coffee doesn't seem to affect my output, (Oh how I missed my coffee!), however any kind of pop does! It's probably for the best, I drink more water now!

I had a soda the other day at a family birthday party, wasn't much to choose from to drink so I had one even though I hardly ever drink them. Yesterday I paid for it dearly. All morning I was nauseaus with cramps and pain. I was fine by the afternoon, but I won't be doing that again. Of course I've been craving soda ever since.

Judy,
I know exactly what you mean about craving it!  It took me a while to get over it, esp when I eat pizza.  That is the worst for me!  I am just about over that tho.  Now that I am not drinking it, I found that I can eat more, have less air in my pouch, and have been able to get my gastric ulcer healed!  Good all the way around!

I had to give up coffee when I used to be sick all the time, but now that I'm healthy, I can enjoy a cup or two in the morning to jump start my day. :-)
