VITAMINS AFTER GASTRIC SLEEVE?????



Recommended Posts

This thread is very interesting to me and surprising. My dietitian had me start the full regiment 3 months prior to surgery.

Vitamin consumption has been sorta difficult for me. I was on the chewables following the surgery until the 2 month period, when I switched to capsules. (For the record, the chewables were not my favorite and I was elated to switch to capsules). The only one that I find that makes me sick now can by the Multi-Vitamin that I take in the mornings. I've had to empty it into yogurt or blend it with a shake. Otherwise, after 20 minutes or so, I feel really nauseous and often throw up.

Hi 👋🏽 my doctor had me start on a chewable Multi Vitamin with Iron the day after surgery when I got home from the hospital. I’ve had no issue keeping them down. He also gave me a sample of a powder form that can be added to my Water both taste great to me the brand is Bariatric Fusion.

THAT DOES MAKE SENSE BUT IM SO WEAK AND EXHAUSTED.


I felt the same way days after my surgery, but it was a lack of calories,, I was told to take Vitamins after my two week dr’s visit .. it’ll get better and you’ll start feeling stronger once you get to stage 2 ,, purées foods

My Multi makes me sick too. I take it at night before bed and that helps . Careful though too that your multi doesn’t contain your Iron supplement, because you shouldn’t take that with dairy products like yogurt or shakes. I usually have mine with a rice cake and PB2 and it does a good job keeping the nausea at bay.

My doctor started me on Vitamins 2 weeks before surgery. It starts with the liquid pre-op diet.

Well I got the bypass but I started Day 3 (which was my first day home).

Flinstones compete and Celebrate chewables.

I am thinking about those Patches though.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)
