Fish Oil Supplement



Recommended Posts

Is anyone taking fish oil supplements? I have read good and bad things about adding this to our diet.

Don't know, I take Krill oil for the omega's. Just don't take if you are on an anticoagulant.

I did pre-op, but post-op Miss Tummy would give them right back. So, I gave up and just eat more fish than I used to.

I too have heard not to mix this supplement with blood thinners including the 81mg aspirin.

I am starting to think it would be better to include more real fish in my diet

My nutritionist told me to take 1000 mg of fish oil daily, so I have been. I can see where they might bother someone after surgery, but I'm still pre-op so can't say. The other things she told me to start taking pre-op was 10,000 IU of Vitamin D (my levels are very, very low), 1000 mg B12, and Calcium citrate (5000 mg). I finally got the Bariatric Chews for the Calcium, although the peanut/butter choc is not so good, and neither is the caramel. The lemon on the other hand is like eating a Starburst so I have to be careful with those ;)

Interesting, I was told to stop taking fish oil. I actually stopped a week before surgery. I'm not sure if it's temporary. I'll have to ask the NUT when I see her Friday. I am only 7 weeks post surgery.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
