I take ProCare 45 mg Iron at night with no problems. I’ve been taking the citrus chewable, but am slowly switching to the capsules. I take them at night since I have a Protein Shake for Breakfast and Iron shouldn’t be taken within 2 hours of Calcium because if absorption issues.

I asked the nurse practitioner if I should stop taking it with the shake because of the Calcium. She said so far everything looks great so keep doing what I’m doing. She explained that it isn’t that calcium or iron cancels the other out. They are just absorbed into the same place so they compete to get absorbed. I guess since there is so much iron even if the calcium wins a little bit I still absorb as much as i need. I am also 7 months out and can eat more than most at this stage so I am absorbing a lot from food as well.

Thank you so much for letting me know!!! I really appreciate it. Now I can be more relaxed about when I take each of them. So good to know.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
