For me as a gastric sleever I'm supposed to get 60 g of Protein a day but it's okay to get more and you can't get too much. I also have to take Vitamin D, Calcium, a Multivitamin, and Vitamin B12 as chewables each day.

Isn't it true to more Protein you get the quicker you will heal? That should make everyone want to keep the totals high.

I had the sleeve. My goals are to get a minimum 60 grams of Protein and 60 Fluid ounces a day. For Vitamins I take 3 calcium/vitamin D chews during the day, one multivitamin with Iron at bedtime (Procare Health). I also take 10mg of Biotin at bedtime and a high dose B12 twice a week. Sorry I cant remember the dose of the B12.

Hope that helps.

For sure! I have Bypass and use BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE "1 per Day!" Bariatric Multivitamin Capsule with 45mg Iron. Ask your surgeon but you should be fine with a capsule. I was taking them the week after surgery without any issues. All surgeons allow Bypass patients to take capsules 30 days post op.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
