Vitamin patches



Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the vitamin patches? I'm concerned about taking pills and digestion. I wondered if anyone has tried the Patches and how well they worked? Have you had your levels checked to see if they are truly providing what our bodies need at adequate levels through absorption.

I’m 3 weeks post op and have been on the Patches since pre op. So far so good. I have not had my levels checked since surgery but my doctors office swears by them.

I asked my surgeon about these at my 3-week post-op visit and she advised against them and told me to stick with the regular chewable soft chew Vitamins. Oh, I had gastric sleeve if that makes any difference.
