Tea tends to have caffeine in it (unless it's herbal or states it's decaffeinated on the container) and we're not supposed to have caffeine for the first few weeks. My surgeon's office said no caffeine for the first month, but every office is slightly different. You might want to check with your surgeon's office if it's okay because I'm pretty sure the crystal light teas have caffeine in them even if the amount isn't that large...

I was given crystal light peach tea when I woke up from surgery, along with a bowl of brow, a bowl of Jello, and a cup of coffee. Honestly, I think it's okay if it's on your list of acceptable items. Your doctor should have given you a diet plan that would include what you can drink during the liquid stage. Everyone's plan is different and every surgeon had their do's/dont's - I'd call them and ask. Good luck on your recovery!

Crystal light was ok on my plan. Please check with your medical team.

I drank Crystal Light iced tea from the day after surgery. It is my go to beverage. I'm not saying it's right for you, it did not cause any problems for me.
