Recommended Posts

I started taking mine at 4 days post op. I got Multivitamins in Gummy and Calcium chewable. So far no problems.

My doctor didn't tell me to start taking mine until after the 1 week check-up, aside from the liquid b12! I was still on fluids only for all that time, and so they didn't have me take anything chewable or any swallowed pills aside from my zantac.

Guess Evey doctor is different because my surgeon wanted me to start them when I did my one week pre op liquid because of the nutrients I was losing before and week after surgery n he didn't want my numbers low....my sleeve was Nov 9 and been on them since a week before but it helped me develop a routine to take my multi w/d in the am when I wake up to get it out the way and then set my alarm no phone for my Calcium cus I was not a good pill taker before :D good luck on your journey..

I use the dissolvable bariatric multi and Calcium. You can buy them right here on BariatricPal.

Remember that you can only absorb 500mg of calcium at a time!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
