Rhonda - Hang in there, hon! Both of the people I know personally who have had this surgery say that they experienced "buyers remorse!" And both of them say they would do it all over again - so give yourself some more time! I'll be praying for you and looking forward to hearing that you've changed your mind!

Hi Rhonda, I had my surgery on August 8th. I like the Crystal Lite. I get the raseberry flavor. I also dilute it more than what the directions says because it is actually pretty strong. I sip that all day long. Best wishes, Melanie

HI AGAIN!! I had my sugery the same day as you! I, too, have a problem with water but Crystal Light seems to go down fairly good for me, you might want to try it. Take care and CONGRATS on your weight loss!!!

~J~~J~Angel reporting!!!!I went to see Rhonda today and she was doing very well, she was still having some pain so they kept her today but I think she will get to go home tomorrow..she did look good and was in good spirits when I saw her. She says she just doesn't have any hunger at all and is worried a little about how much fluid she is getting, but she is getting better...!!!
