  5. I was a heavy 4 to 6 bottle a day diet MT. Dew drinker and any where from 3 to 5 cups of coffee drinker a day . On the day I had my first appointment and fond out this stuff had to go I switched to decaffeinated green tea MAY 13 and never looked back now I only drink tea , water or water with enhanced flavored . You can get use to it but like everyone said work on it before your surgery . Best of everything to you !! Mike
