Need vitamin for sensitive stomach



Recommended Posts

I am hoping the collective wisdom of the folks on here can help me out! A year and a half post surgery, I developed an ulcer. I have been on medication for a couple of months and doing fine. However, my bariatric Vitamins are a trigger for severe back and stomach pain, which lasts up to an hour and a half and at times makes work impossible until it passes. I have tried opening the capsules, taking them with food, taking them with yoghurt, taking them later in the day, drinking Water before I take them. Nothing works. I need to have a Multi-Vitamin with Iron, so I know some discomfort is probable, but for the first year and a half I was fine! Hoping someone had a similar experience, or knows of a good multi-vitamin that is less harsh on my poor stomach.

My clinic questions the effectiveness of them but I have heard people on here talk about vitamin patches. The NP says she has yet to be able to get any of the companies to send her research to prove they actually work but people on here have saiD they work for them. I would Say in a situation such as yours it would be worth a try. I would do regular labs to make sure though.

@ShoppGirl Thanks for the great suggestion! I am going to reach out to my nutritionist, and will ask about the Patches.

What did you find out about the Patches? Did you figure something out to be able to take Vitamins?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
