I was told by my dr to try the Caltrete gummies for my Calcium--I noticed that the are covered in sugar--for 2 tablets its 7g.

I've only taken them a little over a day, but notice soon after I do I get weak, little woozy, and slight headache. Is this from the small amt of sugar?

We were told no gummies as they would not dissolve quick enough and could get stuck. As for the sugar content it is to much at once and you are having symptoms of dumping syndrome. Only 5 grams at the most per serving of sugar was h guideline I was given. There are many choices for bariatric. Bariatric Advantage Vitamins. They taste pretty good lots of flavors to choose from and no dumping. Good luck to you!

I think the gummies have half as much Calcium as the chewables if I remember correctly. That's how it is with the Bariatric Advantage brand anyhow. Only 250g in the gummies and the chewables are 500g. I think the chewables are tearing up my stomach though. (I"m pre-op)

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
