Anyone else need a Hype-man for taking vitamins?



Recommended Posts

I have to hype myself up to swallow my Vitamins. I use a pill cutter for the big boy because I loath throwing up, and if that beast gets stuck, I know I will.

I have to take an additional 265mg of thiamine because I was deficient prior to surgery.

My urine smells like vitamins. It is gross. And I can only assume my sweat will to when I get the go ahead to exercise.

Yesterday I think I experienced “the foamies” people talk about on here after I took my vitamins. It lasted like an hour. I finally ate a sugar free pudding in an attempt to weigh down the foamies. It either worked or enough time had passed.

Yep, same. I space mine out over 30min to an hour, longer if they start to bother me, and I never take them on an empty stomach. That seems to help a good bit. I have the Vitamin pee thing, too, but I haven't noticed it in my sweat. I don't love it, but its just one of those things that comes along with WLS.

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
