Vitamin suggestions liquids are awful [emoji20]



Recommended Posts

I think most of them are awful until you get to the point post op that your surgeon allows you to take pills. I take Bariatric Fusion chewables. I can't take Vitamins in pill form until three months post op. They're not super terrible, but they're not great either. I just suffer through it, keeping in mind that it's temporal and will pass and soon I can have the pill form.

liquid and chewable are all horrible. I could not deal with it. I worked with my team and they luckily cleared me to take the capsules at my 2 week follow up as long as I could handle them. Luckily I could.

"Celebrate" has a drink mix, the raspberry lemonade is not horrible but I still couldn't drink it even when adding extra Water to thin it out. They all just have a horrible aftertaste to me, I can't get past it.

Speaking of which, I have random stuff that I don't use and would love to just give to someone if they want to try it. I have these in single serve packs. I also have the same brand "4 in 1" chocolate shakes. I open bucket and i unopened bucket. Both approved by my team to use post op.

Tell your team you are struggling and ask if you can be cleared to take pills. Teams vary on this but many of us were swallowing pills in the hospital so it’s possible you will get cleared.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
