Hi all! Happy weekend. I have my surgery next Wednesday- I am so excited! I am doing the endoscopic sleeve and have about 80 lbs to lose. Still so frustrated that I got here to begin with but enough looking back- excited about the journey to come. I am a major researcher and have been looking at other prep guides online outside of that was provided by my doctor. I am curious if anyone has thoughts and can share about what supplements you were guided to take after surgery and when for you start? I ok now supplements and Protein are super important to this process, but it is a lot to take in and the schedule as well. I have been one that has only conferred with my doctor and staff via phone and zoom. I am the thanks duke they allowed me to proceed during covid times, but do feel like I am missing a bit. Thank you for any thoughts!

Cheers! Jennifer

the Vitamin thing is overwhelming at first, but it becomes pretty automatic after awhile. I don't even have to think about it anymore. I took a handful when I got up in the morning, another (smaller) handful before dinner, and then another Calcium supplement sometime during the day, and Iron before I went to bed. I got one of those pill separators/containers (where I load it up for the week) a year or so ago which made it even easier. I just take what's in the day compartment in the morning, and the night compartment in the late afternoon. Then all I have to remember to take is that extra calcium sometime during the day and my iron before I go to bed.
