Citracal is one of the popular brands and is widely available, as are house brand analogs from Target and others. They are typically 650mg Calcium citrated and 500mg of vit D. Trader Joes has a similar product. It is generally accepted that we can only absorb around 600-650 mg of calcium at a time, hence the need to break it up into multiple doses during the day (and avoid taking it with Iron supplements as they conflict). The pill form is widely available, so one shouldn't need to order and ship them, though the chewable ones are more specialized if you need to use them.

Walmart carries them in EQUATE brand. Be sure to buy the petites. They are smaller. Depending on how far out you are you might need to cut them down too. That is what my Surgeon suggested and I have always used the EQUATES with no problems, My blood work has always been great except my B12. It has always been high. They had me doing the sublingual everyday after my surgery, then it was one time a week Now I use it twice a week in the hair SKIN AND NAILS pills I take.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
