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..

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
