So been trying to find a Vitamin that does not cause me nausea or make me throw up. Sure enough it was the amount of Iron in them. I switched from the 45mg of iron one to the 18mg of iron and no nausea, no vomiting.

The only problem is with that amount you may get low. I bet you could tolerate a lower dose of just Iron another time of day though. Just gotta still work it out where you take it all two hours away from the Calcium.

Yea I guess you can do that and see what your levels are at your 3 month appointment. Some people say they don’t need Vitamins aftet a year because they get them from food. I don’t know that I eat THAT great to get all the little micronutrients and stuff from food but just needing one Vitamin maybe you can do it.

I was on an iron pill before surgery and the surgeon told me to stop using it. It is hard on the guts so that makes sense. Also can cause constipation. He said if I ended up needed iron, I would get it via IV infusion.

But, now that you mention it my multi also has iron. I guess I should ask him about that.

In 3 months the surgeon is ordering a round of blood test to see how i am doing so we shall see.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
