    What vitamins to take?

    Hello all, I'm second guessing what I thought I should be doing. Should I be taking a multivitamin to get the RDA for RNY patients "and" taking extra Vitamin D3, Calcium, Iron and B12 "or" just taking a multivitamin with the RDA? Example: they said to take 1500mg of calcium a day...if my multivitamin provides 1500mg, is the vitamin enough or should I be taking the vitamin and an extra 1500mg of calcium? TIA

    What vitamins to take?

    Ok...that's what I've been doing but thought I could do away with some if I was taking more than recommended.

    Hello

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and would like to introduce myself. I'm a 47yr old wife and a mom of 3 (27yrs, 10yrs & 9yrs) I'm addicted to food and an over eater. Nothing dark or sinister in my childhood to make me like this, just...I LOVE FOOD lol. So, I'm lurking around.

    Hello

    Hi all...had surgery tuesday and got home thursday evening. Everything went well and the doctor even fixed a hiatal hernia that I didn't know I had. Surgery was about 2hrs long. I have 5 incisions and 1 is really sore because they worked it a lot. It feels like alcohol being poured on an open wound so, I'm taking my Percocet routinely. I had 1/4 cup pudding and 1/4 cup cream of wheats today and it's hard getting my water in. It's after 8pm and I still need another 20 ounces to drink. I'm thinking I'll go with protein shakes tomorrow so I can get some nutrition with my liquids.
  5. This is finally the last day of my Optifast. Tomorrow I can have clear liquids (sounds heavenly) and Tuesday is "the" day. I don't EVER want to see another Optifast item again LOL.

    Hospital Packing

    I never thought of my chapstick...a big thanks!!! I'm also taking my own pillow because I know I don't like the hospitals. Someone told me my own clothes to be comfy in but I'm comfy in the hospital gowns and I'm going to rock it walking down the halls lol.

  8. I'm on the 11th day of 13 days pre-op Optifast diet. I hate the bars, but can tolerate the soups & shakes. I get a call from my dietician today saying my potassium is high and if I eat a lot of the soups that could be the reason. So, now I'm down to 1 soup a day and 6 shakes. I caved and ate 2 eggs, 1/2c cottage cheese and will have 3 shakes for the rest of the day. I guess my cheat wasn't too awful and it was amazing to chew food again lol
