To investigate the effect of coffee consumption on bowel motility on postcaesarean patients. This study is designed as a prospective randomized trial. Patients who are operated between dates June 2017-July 2017 are assessed for eligibility. We included patients who are operated under elective conditions. Leading exclusion criterias were; emergency caesarean section , patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and who had previous bowel or endometriosis surgery. Simple randomization scheme is used. Patients allocated to intervention group drank 65 cc Turkish coffee at postoperative 4 th and 12 th hour; control group patients drank warm water starting from postoperative 4th hour. Time to first flatus, presence of stool passage and nausea, vomiting are questioned and recorded. Sixty five patients’ data was available for final analysis. General characteristics of control and intervention group patients were similar regarding mean age, body mass index (BMI), operation time, type of anesthesia , postoperative analgesic requirement . Mean time to first flatus was 17.7±6.1 and 13.0±5.7 hours respectively for control and intervention group (p:0.004). Number of patients whose stool passage assured before discharge were 7 (22.6%) in control and 3 (8.8%) in intervention group (p:0.174). There was not any patient who had nausea and vomiting in both groups. Postoperative coffee consumption is a cheap, attainable and safe practice that can be utilized to expedite gastrointestinal motillity during postcaesarean period.
