What form/brand of Calcium are you taking? I know we need to take calcium citrate, but I'm trying to figure out if there is something better for me. I'm currently taking Citrical petites but I need to take 2 pills 3 times a day - which is hard to do. I'm just not getting them in. I saw liquid calcium citrate online. Does anyone take that? How do you get all of you calcium in?

I'm taking Calcium Magnesium Citrate with VitaminD3 made by Solgar. I purchased it at the Vitamin Shoppe. I take 15ml liquid daily but I'm not sure if I should be taking more. I have my appt tomorrow I'm going to ask them. I'll be honest - I'm not loving having something else to drink. I think I'd rather chews.

Yes, I use liquid Calcium by Wellesse. It doesn't taste that bad either. Still doesn't help me get it in 3 times a day though. I pretty much only take it twice daily.

Great question! I take 3 different kinds, depending on what I am doing for the day. I use Wellesse liquid, UpCal D powder, and Calcet Creamy Bites. The wellesse liquid doesn't taste that bad, the powder I mix in with my protien shakes or sugar free pudding, and the Creamy Bites when I am on the go. Using a combination of the three, I never struggle to get my Calcium in.

liquid Calcium Magnesium Citrate for me as well - surgeon's orders. I take LifeTime that I purchase from Amazon. Comes in several flavors - both the Natural Lemon Custard and strawberry are really quite tasty. I take it once a day in the evening and my blood work has been spot on for two years.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
