I had RNY a week and 2 days ago. I’m so thirsty ALL THE TIME. I know I’m not dehydrated because I hardly ever stop drinking. I’m not currently taking any Vitamins. Could I be deficient? My dr. never mentioned anything about vitamins after surgery.

Omg you need bariatric Vitamins immediately. Order from Celebrate. Your management should have given you a book with Vitamin requirements, the different eating stages and etc.

I do have a book. It outlines the diets but not Vitamins. I know I need them. But I don’t know what.

I take the pro-care and you can buy them on this site. They have all the rda needed after rny.

Good luck!

The Celebrate bariatric Vitamins have all the necessities l. 500 units of B12, 3000 units of Vitamin D3 and etc. You also need 1500 mg a day of Calcium carbonate or citrate a day. Take 1 tablet after each meal and take the vitamins 2x a day. You can get that all from celebrate. You probably want the bariatric vitamins with Iron. As I am post menopausal I didn't need the iron.

Call your nutritionist. They should have given you a sheet telling you which Vitamins to take. You definitely need them. Mine has me taking a soft chew Multivitamin, B12, Vitamin D, and Calcium. Glad you're staying hydrated.

Yes, please get your Vitamins & supplements ASAP!!! This is one of the things they always stress! You do not want complications due to insufficiencies! Your body needs this.

Don’t panic about the Vitamins. You won’t die if you don’t start them for a few days. But you should call your doctors office to speak to someone about what they want you to take. Whatever you get, I don’t recommend starting with something you swallow- I’d suggest a chewable for a month or two at least. There are so many brands and price points and you may just need to try a few until you find what works best. But no need to panic or think you will be sick from not having them for a few days.

I am always thirsty also- even right after surgery I drank a lot. Could be affects of the anesthesia giving you a bit of extra thirst as well. Good luck on your journey.

My plan had me starting Vitamins after 2 weeks. No need to panic. I take Bariatric Advantage soft chews: multi, calcium citrate. I also take Iron and Biotin.

This is one of the reasons I am glad to be here...my first reaction was a bit of panic, because it was grilled into us to start taking the Vitamins & supplements after discharged home. Everyone helps keep things in perspective...

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
