I started my post-op Vitamins on March 15th and have thrown up every time I have taken them. I make sure I have food in my belly before I take them and have given myself a good two weeks to adjust but to no avail!!!

Any advice?

I will be calling my doc here shortly to see what he suggests!

I haven't been throwing up, but my multis haven't been sitting well. I take Wellesse liquid Calcium with D, and also their liquid sublingual B-12. I was taking the opurity multis, but they are just too big and acidic for me. I bought Flintstone Complete chewables and took 2 of them to come close to the Opurity stats. I am going to call my dietician to see what else I can do. My doc's office has said absolutely no gummies - I have a feeling it would be easier though. I know Wellesse makes a liquid multi, but I can't find it around here.

I take the chewable Bariatric Advantage Multivitamin with the Vit D and B12. They were just making me queasy but last Friday I actually threw up. Since then I gave been breaking then in halves and quarters and only taking in more once the nausea subsides. Can you break your Vitamin dosage up to see if that changes things?

I went off the suggested Vitamins and onto gummies' date=' and viola! No problems. That was pretty early on, too.[/quote']

gummies have no Iron...probably what was. Careful though, I know there was another thread about this and I had said I was told to never eat those again. Lots of responses saying no problems so I bugged my Dr and he said he has had an instance of a blockage at the entrance of the stomach. I know it's just one...and seems weird like, did they swallow it whole? I will probably try them again when I'm on regular food but definitely not too soon.

Update*** Doc had me go off of the Vitamins for a while and start up again with non-chewable. Seems as though the chewables and their fast absorption rate where too much for my new stomach to handle. Doctor recommended finding small pill form Vitamins or cutting large pills in half... gummies were also OK'd if chewed well before swallowing! Hit 199 on Monday and feeling great! :)

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
