After my right hemicolectomy I discovered that coffee had rather strong laxative effect.
Prior to my surgery I had no clue that coffee was supposed to have such effect.
Coffee laxative effect is rather strong in my case.
When I am in the office I need a few cups of coffee through the day, that leads to a few extra trips to a bathroom.
The obvious solution is to stay at home and do not drink coffee.
Unfortunately I can't afford to retire right now and still need to work.
Can you think of another way of dealing with this issue?
Do you believe that different ways of coffee preparation have different laxative effects?
For example, have you noticed any difference between black coffee and coffee with milk, between dripping coffee, espresso and instant coffee, between dark roast and light roast?
Does tea have similar laxative effect or not?
I am willing to trade coffee for tea for my caffeine fix.
