Hi,

I am wondering if anyone else suspects that the post surgery weight loss Vitamins cause diarrhoea?

I had diarrhoea so many times right after surgery, but then I ran out of the vitamins and didn’t take them for four weeks and everything was totally fine...until I started the vitamins again yesterday and bam, today I had the runs again (at work out of all places, so humiliating haha).

Sorry to be so disgusting, but I need to know if anyone else has this problem?

Thank you.

Are they a chewable or Gummy type of Vitamin? If so, perhaps it is the sweetener that is used in them, typically a sugar alcohol or sucralose, that are known to sometimes have that effect.

Hi Rick,

they are capsules I swallow whole, so I don’t believe there is Sorbitol in it. But it’s just an odd coincidence that it started again right after taking these Vitamins again..

I am thinking about quitting for a few days and see what happens and discussing it with the dietician next time, because this is very inconvenient and embarrassing hehe..

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
