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)
25+years diagnosed with CD.
Numerous surgeries, permanent ostomy, adverse reactions to Remicade, finally off of Prednisone, hoping for a long remission from this last surgery.
