    MissSimpson got a reaction from Frustr8 in Vitamin help please!   
    My NUT and my Dr. said dummies are fine, just to make sure you chew them correctly. There's still acid in your stomach, or nothing that passes through would digest. I'm about to switch to a prenatal Vitamin, though. My hair is falling out like crazy, even though I take a Multi-Vitamin and a dissolvable Biotin supplement.

    Jello? I learned to love me some Jello! And I found some flavored Protein Water at CVS. I think its called Trimino. They're pretty good when you need a change of flavor.

    I wanted to do the Patches, but they're not FDA approved. And Tespo? I've been on this site for a minute, and I haven't heard good things about it. They're both so expensive!

    It was hard for me to swallow my actual medications at first. I take two women's Once A Day gummies. It's almost like a little sweet treat! Haha! Also, make sure that whatever Vitamins you get have Iron. A lot of Multivitamins do not. I also take a tiny pill iron supplement, and a Biotin dissolvable that I got from Bariatric Pal.

    I have frontal alopecia so out of everything that came with the surgery, the Hair loss was one I was used to dealing with. I’m only 2 months out but I’ve seen a significant increase in the thinning. I guess I assumed it wouldn’t bother me since I’ve delt with it for a number of years, but it’s so bad you can pretty much see my entire scalp 😭

    They brought me a popsicle and a red Powerade right after surgery. I threw it up right after. It looked like blood and freaked me out. I still can't have red sports drinks. The day after, they gave me veggie broth. Vomit. Walk around and move as much you can. They pump your tummy full of CO2 so they can get in there. Walking and moving is the ONLY thing that will make you feel better! Even if you don't feel like it, take a little walk.

    The FIRST thing that my doctor told me pre-op was, "You're going to lose your hair." Boo! He said take an extra Biotin supplement, but its still falling out.

    It comes off fast the first couple of months. You'll stall and feel bad about it, but the weight will come off again. I have lost almost 60 in 6 months. That's since my operation day. I haven't lost my big booty though! Hahaha! I never had much up top, so IDK about that.

    I was told to stay away from fizzy drinks. They just make you bloated. Try to find G2 or G0, or some sugar free Powerade. Also, DO NOT DRINK ANYTHING while or right after you eat. That ALWAYS makes me sick. No Water, no tea (unsweet, and yeah, I'm from Mississippi) 30 minutes before or after you eat, unless you need a little sip.

    One day I was downtown with my daughter and grandson, I had an extreme headache, I needed to take some Tylenol so I ask my grandson if I could use a sip of his mountain dew. Now he doesn't like to drink after anyone but he did this day!! So I had not had any carbonation since before my RNY. Without even thinking I took one sip of it. LET ME TELL YOU WHAT!!! When it hit my pouch it set it on FIRE!!! NEVER ever again will I try anything with carbonation. And why would you? People say they let it go flat, well that definitely wouldn't work for me I loved the carbonation!!!
