Coffee on 4th day Post Op
Lap Band Surgery

Is it okay to drink coffee on 4th post op day?

While certainly not a health food, coffee is fine to drink after lap band surgery. Even on 4th day post op.

You can even make "frappuccino" like protein shakes:

  • 1 cup cold coffee + 1 scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder + ice

  • 1 cup water + 1 scoop vanilla protein powder + 1 Tbsp. instant coffee + ice

simply add a ready-to-drink ("RTD") protein shake to hot or cold coffee.
