taking supplements (right) after surgery
I am leaning towards starting them tonight/tomorrow since I'm starting full liquids now.
When did everyone else start?
Also, how hard was it to get your monster-sized chewables down at first?

Good Luck they are a little hard to get down at first but it gets better.

You can either believe it will happen.....or believe it won't. Both are self fulfilled prophesies. For Me it has happened. My Surgery was September 21/2010
The ASMBS says to start the multi the day you come home and the iron. They say you can wait up to 30 days to start calcium and up to three months to start B12. Not that you must wait, just that you can.
It was not hard to get them down at all.

I started taking my vitamins immediately after surgery.
Sip a little bit of water to help wash down the chewable multivitamins. Centrum Chewables aren't that big. Whenever I use a chewable, that's the brand I buy.
I bought a pill crusher for my calcium citrate only because it was uncomfortable for me to swallow at first. I only used it for a few weeks.
