I was told to take them day 8 on full liquids. If you are taking Iron you need something in your stomach, it's very hard on an empty stomach.

Nope, my surgeon just feels like there is enough reserves during that time that its not necessary and that healing of the stomach is more important. You hear how those Multivitamins can make you sick to your stomach? He doesn't want that happening early on so he has his patients wait.

I don't think its the lack of Vitamins, its the lack of calories plus the fact that you just had surgery and your body is recovering.

I used vitamin patches from day 1 for three weeks then switched to chewables (didn't like the taste), then capsules.

The next day, chewable only, and after one month I can start the pill form if so desire. I am going to switch to pill because I do not like the taste of the chewable.

Sometime in the first week after I got back home.

Your weakness and lethargy is unlikely due to Vitamins, but just a hangover from the surgery as you go through the initial healing, and quite possibly a result of your current diet being very low in carbohydrates (intentional or not) which is what helps keep our short term energy levels up.
