  1. Any suggestions on a good Multi Vitamins? I am 4+weeks post op and started Vitamins this week. I got these complete chewable vitamins from Bariatric fusion, strawberry, I am supposed to take 4 a day. I can’t stand them. They make me gag. They are so big and chalky. Any suggestions please. I’m ok with a Vitamin I have to swallow, no gummies at the direction of my surgeon. Thank you!!!!

    Spices and seasoning

    Thank you both so much, makes perfect sense. I will wait!!!
  3. Hi. In preparation for my puréed stage (surgery date was 5/10), during the purée stage does anyone know any restrictions on spices and seasoning? (It won’t be anything spicy, I don’t do that). What about Everything But the Bagel seasoning? Thank you
  4. Hi. So my post op instructions from my doctor are to not start vitamins until 4 weeks post op. I’m following doctor’s orders, but curious if anyone was told to wait this long as well and if they know the reason for waiting.
  5. After my 1-2 weeks of liquids, the post op diet I’ve been given by doctor for Stage 3 is 1-2 oz puréed (mushy) soft, high protein meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. NO red meats, chicken breast or eggs. This seems to be different from everyone else’s plan, as I see so many have eggs and chicken. But I’m gonna follow what he’s given me. That being said, any suggestions of what puréed foods you recommend. I will not eat puréed, mushy fish. I’m at a loss.

    Miss Chugging Water

    My surgery was just this past Monday, May 10th. I miss chugging big gulps of ice cold Water. I’m ok with taking little sips for now, while my stomach heals. But will there be a time I can gulp cold water again? And if so, how long did it take you?

    Holy cow, all your liquids?!?!?! I’m impressed. I didn’t even come close. Today was my first day starting protein. I’m so scared to try to do too much.

    Hi, I had my surgery on the 10th also. How's it going for you? I feel pretty good today, but I get cramping down my sides when i take the tiniest sips of water. It lasts less than 30 seconds, but not enjoying it. My go to at the moment is sugar free popsicles.
