African American Sleevers



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, have a question about the gallbladder. (Someone who never had any health problems besides being overweight)

I'm afraid of getting sleeved, because I've read that most weightloss surgeries later down the line your gallbladder will have to be removed has anyone been thru this and is it best to have ot removed at the same time the sleeve is done, I just don't want to go thru this later on.I have no health problems. Please advise? I'm just waiting on approval from the Insurance company.

I asked my doc and he said, not everyone will need gallbladder surgery, but a percentage of those sleeved will...it all depends.

For those who have been sleeved: what Vitamins do you suggest? And how often do you take them on a daily basis? Thanks in advance :-D

I do a multi, 2 calcium chews , 5000mcg of Biotin, 1000 mcg of B12 & 2tsp of omega3-6-9 yogurt oil.

I just doubled my B12 per doctor since my energy was still so low. I was told by others to ger the shots but doc said it would do the same and not hurt getring the shots.

Its really helped! Took about a week before I could tell though.

Are you are taking a Biotin pill? If so, what brand. In the past I had Vitamin toxicity so I cant take too many Vitamins. Don't laugh, but I take 2 Flintstone Multivitamin chewables w/extra Iron, B12 tablet, and my regular meds...blood pressure, plavix, and cholesterol until I lose my weight. I'm anemic so I need the iron and these vitamins are really working well for me right now. I just dont want an overload bc of the consequences.

I take an iron pill as well. Sorry.I just bought the brand Natural from Walmart it's 10,000mcg. It should not matter how much you take in a B vitamin cuz your body will get rid of what's not needed.
