I found liquid B12 at this website. http://www.vrp.com/energizers/b12-methylcobalamin

The liquid is cinnamon flavored. Tastes pretty good. I believe when I bought them last, I bought 2 bottles and got 1 free. 1 4 oz bottles lasts about 4 months.

I go into surgery exactly a week from today (nervous!) and was wondering if anyone has tried this product: Trim Methylcobalamin Max (B12) 10,000 mcg/ml? I'm also uncomfortable with the idea of injecting myself, but I feel like this would be the best option for getting B12 with my sleeve.

If I was gonna do B-12 injections I would have my doctor write a script and fill it at the pharmacy. Some insurances will cover it and if your doctor writes for needles some insurances will cover that too.

Good point! It is definitely much better to have a doctor prescribe it than to just order from some random online store and that's why I'm hesitant at this point. Unfortunately, I don't have insurance. That's one of the reasons I am going to Mexico for surgery. I really don't want to lose my hair at 3 months post-op, even though I know it comes back at around 8 months post-op. I made the mistake of relaxing my hair twice in the past and I've been wearing it naturally and curly for almost 3 years now and just want to keep it from falling off.

I'd love to hear from anyone who ordered non-prescribed B-12 injections online and how it worked for them.

I'm taking the dots from Celebrate Vitamins. They dissolve pretty fast. I recently had my 3 month post op blood work done and my B-12 was excellent. I've always taken supplements so this one is just another small one I take in the morning along with one of my multi-vitamins, Biotin, and Vitamin D.< /p>

Wow! I didn't even know there is a website out there specializing in supplements for us! Thanks so much for sharing that! I see a couple of options for B-12 pills on there. I'm wondering which one you've been taking?

The sublingual B-12 in Cherry Flavor. I don't order them off the site though, I buy them through my nutritionist as she stocks them. They also have them on Amazon but I think they are more expensive than the Celebrate website.

I picked up a B-12 sublingual liquid made specifically for bariatric patients at Hi Health. It is made by twin labs. It is a good sized bottle that should last awhile. Doesn't taste too bad.

Bariatric Advantage sells a sublingual B12 tablet in a black cherry flavor and it is not that large. it tastes good too and really doesn't take that much time to dissolve under my tongue.

The directions on my b-12 say "place under tongue for 30 seconds then swallow.".

I just grabbed my bottle to read the directions, it just says take one tablet daily or directed by physician.

I wonder since I'm chewing them if I'm getting any of the benefits.

I'm sure you are. B-12 is so highly dosed in the pill form, it's hard not to get the benefit.

I am gonna have to throw this at yall. For 5 months and 2 weeks I took the liquid form. For the last 2 weeks I got the injectables with a slin pin. I feel absolutely way better than the previous 5 1/2 months. Energy is elevated, mood elevated. I am a firm believer in injectable B12. Throw the rest away. I loaded my system with 1ml every day for 7 days then 2x a week there after.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
