I'm wondering what amount of vit D3, B12 and calcium citrate people were told to take daily for life? And how often do you get labs done? Thanks.

I'll leave it up to a sleever to give you the amounts (although some of that may depend on your surgeon - as well as what your labs look like), but as far as frequency of labs go, I had them every three months the first year, and then annually after that. Although if something is trending in a negative direction in my annual labwork, then they adjust my supplement dose and re-test that particular item 2-3 months later.

I took a good quality women’s multi Vitamin & D3 recommended by my dietician (the brand, Bioceuticals, is stored behind the counter at the pharmacy where the better stuff is kept - well at least it is in Australia). I was getting labs done about every two months to begin & then every three. I also had a couple of monthly tests too. My GP & surgical team would alternate their requests. Some of that came from concerns about my liver function - it’s all good now.
