2 doses Wellesse liquid Calcium, contains calcium citrate, D3 and Magnesium.
1 B12, sublingual, black cherry, got from Bariatric Pal Store.
Didn't ask but on 3x daily Zofran, 3x daily Wellbutrin 100
once daily Ditropan, Zyrtec. Singular, omeprazole, I find it useless as ppi, but n.p. says for non- ulceration, bet I tell them I want my Dexilent back! Still have liquid Tylenol in plastic shoebox, don't take as long as pain free. And I am still supposed to be on additional Mg for leg cramping, either it is working , 500 mg morniing, 500 he or I am less prone to cramping as my weight creeps down. Having more problems with limited diet and being emesis prone. Next Friday October 12, an EGD to see if I do have a stricture, bet I do from my symptoms, Told them I DO NOT HAVE good luck with oneprazoke, that's why gastroenterologist had me on Dexilent. But it's their party, only my body suffers. Time for another 2 oz of Propel. Going to be meticulous for these 3 days until I see Dr Needleman, my surgeon. And trying not to urp my way into a 50 mile saga to Columbus, that's a long way when you are miserable.

Two BariLife Vitamins three times a day. The second photo shows that they are rather large coated tablets. My surgeon specifically cited these Vitamins. I’ve had my bloodwork done three times in 4 months for other procedures. It is spectacular. I sometimes throw a Calcium patch on if I miss a dose of Vitamins. I also throw down a Biotin once a day for nails and hair.  The BariLife and Calcium Patches are available here at the store.
These keep my Iron, B12, Calcium, everything at the mid to upper range on my lab results sheet without the hassle of a trillion different pills.  They hit the stomach and dissolve as soon as the coating goes.  The surgeon recommends them because they are gone so quickly.  However, if you have a problem with big pills, these are on the large end of the scale.  I don’t know how splitting them would work since they are quick dissolve inside.

Remember after VSG and bypass, your stomach acidity plummets, you no longer can digest Calcium Carbonate which Tums are made from, if you LIKE Stone Stool, cause that is what you"'ll have, because no acid- No Tum Digestion, you really should opt fo calcium citrate , a form of calcium that your body CAN USE. And I hate useless spending when it is not necessary.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
