I use the Centrum fruity chewables but they’re more suckables than chewables. They taste lovely so they probably don’t give me enough stuff!
Before surgery, I used to take daily Turmeric with vit D, I’ve not found anyone who can tell me whether it’s alright to continue them. They come from The Golden Paste company

For turmeric, this is something to check with your doctor about. However, forms that are hydro-soluble will absorb better.

I'm a little concerned about how you would know this...😊

My doctor said no gummy vitamins. I'm going to ask why next time I go. Gummy Calcium and gummy B12 is ok just not Multivitamins. Sounds strange to me...

I am on all chewables- my Multivitamin, calcium citrate (I use Bariatric Advantage chews), Vitamin D3 and a disolvable under tongue sublingual B12. Going to get my blood work done first time this week after surgery for my 3 months and we will see if they are working.

I have been using the chewables for a year before surgery and now two months after I still use them.

FYI I am 18 months out and did check with my surgeon on the turmeric. She said it is absolutely fine to take it post op. She takes turmeric herself so is very familiar with it.

I made sure it was safe to take pre op as I am riddled with arthritis and could not get by without it.

I know that drs are all different but hope this helps since you were not able to get answers from yours.

I have been using opurity chewable sleeve and bypass optimized Vitamins from Unjury since surgery. They are high quality, taste good and are affordable.

My favorite are from Celebrate bariatric vitamins! I take the quick dissolve ones! Due to my lab work I take d3 and B12 along with my multi and calcium! Celebrate also has a great deal for $9.99 and they send you a big bag of vitamin/protein samples to try! Highly recommend!

Good luck!

I have a couple bottles of the complete bariatric Vitamin where you just chew 2x2 a day. They just became so gross I’ve switched to Patches until my blood work says they aren’t working. My D is low but that’s normal for me so I do a weekly pill and folate low because I started methotrexate so I take folic acid pills. The patches are just so much easier. Praying they continue to work. 🤞🏼

My doctor recommended Bariatric Fusion chewable. I found the orange cream flavor on Amazon. 4 chewables a day gives you all the Iron, Calcium, B12, etc. you need and they taste good.

Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

These are the ones I started on. Eventually they just became disgusting. My tastes keep changing. But these are the best since it’s every Vitamin and just 4 a day. The berry taste the best IMO but for now I just can’t deal with them

One thing that some of you may want to note is that chewable are more easily absorbed than capsules or pills that you just swallow I was told chewable for life

My doctor requires chewables or powder for the first 3 months. Since I'm just over a week post op, it's kind of nice to get to chew something.

I take the Bariatric Advantage chewable Advanced Multi EA and their calcium chews. The multivitamins smells terrible, but tastes fine. It did upset my stomach the first time I took it, but never thereafter. I take the fruit flavored Calcium chews and they are so good! It's like a softer starburst, so it's a nice treat twice a day!

I tried chewable vitamins and I immediately threw up. I thought maybe I should try dissolving them in my mouth instead of chewing it but I hated the taste and it felt too sweet. I threw up within seconds of swallowing it. Now I’m back to tablets that smell and taste terrible but for the most part I can keep them down. It takes a while for me to take all of them. I still get Gatorade zero and drink about 4oz while taking the tablets to help with the taste so I don’t throw them up. It’s weird and I don’t know what to do about it. I’m even sadder for having to give out brand new set of chewable Vitamins. I’m 5weeks post op so maybe it will get easier...who knows.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
