Okay, I'm going to be honest, I've never really taken Vitamins ever in my life, I know not good BUT I'm hearing that if I Don't take them now I will loose a lot of my hair + they will help give me the energy to move (which I barely have!) can someone Please tell me the vitamins I need to go buy?! I'm a week and 1/2 post op and just never really looked into this aspect of the surgery =\

Thanks in advance for all of the help!

I need to start taking mine. My surgery was on Tuesday,

The nutritionist I talked to before the surgery recommended CHEW-ABLE multi Vitamins and chewable Calcium. You will have to really chew them. I bought them from sams club in big jars cause they come with so much more for the price.

What liquids are you using ?

Natures answer makes a liquid multi. So does Centrum.

B1 I open the capsule in a shot of Water

B12 I take micro ligually

Calcium I take up cal D

And D3 I use drops.

Surprised my NUT lol, I'm super afraid of pills. I can eat an egg but can't take a pill lol

I am using Wellesse brand, they have it all. https://wellesse.alice.com/

I am pre-op, but the Wellesse brand has a Multivitamin, calcium/vitamin D, and B complex all available in liquid form. I am taking a multi, now but will start the others a.s.ap. Just thought I would add my two cents! LOL!

This stuff is going perfect with the post op liquid diet, I am 3 days out.

Congrats on being 3 days post-op!

Did you take your Vitamins pre-op too? I was told I would have to get B12 shots, but I said "NOT IF I CAN HELP IT! LOL! I don't understand why I would need the shots if my multi has b Vitamin in it and I am taking a liquid b complex with b12 in it. Anyway, I can't believe the Vitamins are already working.. the taste is a little difficult, but I think it is worth it!

Kaiser won't give us B12 shots. As they are either weekly or monthly, in the long run you get less B12 than if you were to take it sublingual. The sleeve doesn't change your anatomy or how you absorb Vitamins. Only RNY does that as they bypass.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
