    What multivitamins do you take if you can't take the bariatric vitamins?
  3. Has anyone's liver levels risen since having surgery? Mine were always normal and I just had bloods drawn and they were significantly elevated. I work for a gastro doc so in two weeks we are gonna repeat with other tests and hope it was a fluke. I am 8 weeks post op

    Things you wish someone had told you?

    I never changed out of my gown til I left. The only things I took out of my overpacked bad were Chapstick, my phone and charger

    Birth control and surgery

    My last active pill was 2 weeks before surgery so I wasn't going to start a new pack so I stopped 2 weeks prior. He said to wait until 3 weeks post op to start taking again as the first 3 weeks are when you are most prone to blood clots
  17. Nope I take 40mg of omeprazole. How many hours before bed are you eating?

    Biotin for hair loss?

    I take 10000mcg a day! I started few weeks prior to surgery so that I get in the habit of taking it

    Insurance (NJ) horizon BCBS !

    I have BCBS NJ Advantage EPO. I just got sleeved on 2/9. I didn't have to do a 12 month nutritional program. I had my first consult on 12/11/14. It may vary by plan. What BCBS NJ plan do you have.

    Feeling cold.

    I was sleeved on the 9th. I've been told the coldness is a side effect of surgery. Last night I had a heating blanket plus 2 more blankets.
