Stop vitamins before surgery?



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am getting ready to set up my appointment for late Feb. for a modified TT (skin only) and brachio. I am so anxious.

I need to just call, pay the deposit and commit to it.

i will have an appointment 2 weeks before to discuss details but i wanted to ask if any of you had to stop your high dose Vitamin for a day or longer before surgery.

I have had surgery 3x since my RNY 5 years ago, and every time they have me stop ALL supplements for 7 days beforehand.

I was told to stop 1 week before as well, but I totally forgot to to stop. Oopsies. I ended up taking them right up to the day before surgery. I didn't remember that I was supposed to stop until like a week AFTER surgery 🙄

P.S. So excited for you!!!

No, I was told to keep taking all my Vitamins. I just had to stop fish oil because it's a blood thinner.

Hi! I’m going in on Wednesday for an arm lift and my surgeon said it was ok to take my Vitamins but just didn’t want me taking any Vitamin E. My multi vitamin has some vitamin E in it but it’s low enough that it’s ok to still take. Good luck!

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
