Sugar Free Beverage List

It is very important that you maintain proper hydration before AND after surgery. You should drink at least 64 fluid ounces every day of water or other sugar-free beverages. Please follow the 30/30 rule (do not drink anything 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after you eat). This will especially help you feel more comfortable after surgery. It will be helpful for you if you wean yourself off of all carbonated and caffeinated beverages before surgery. The air from the carbonation can cause cramping and bloating in your post-op phases. The caffeine could dehydrate you and irritate your stomach.
