Oh gosh I never knew disgusting until I had to grind Tylenol after surgery. I'm so thankful that my pain let up quick bcuz I don't think I could have handled much more. [emoji23]

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.
