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..

      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
