I had my labs checked in Sept and all was well. Then I switched my vitamin source in Oct. Pam, I am not trying to say that OTC is not a good choice, but I was doing well on BA and for me it is easier to go back to what was working rather than to try new products to find something that works. I was already planning to go back to BA because I miss the chewables....they were my sweet at the end of a meal.
It is quite painful, the ulcers are all around the bottom edge of my tongue on both sides. I am barely talking and have been living on cottage cheese, yogurt and r/f beans exclusively this week. Dr. gave me a topical analgesic to ease the pain enough for me to eat and that helped immensely. Tonight I had a bit of baked chicken with my r/f beans.
Michelle, my PCP has been checking my labs, but not to my satisfaction...definitely not 14 vials worth! I have discussed this with my surgeon and for my next labs he will write the orders. He did not feel it necessary to rerun them in Sept right after my PCP had done them. I am using a sublingual B12 that I got at my local health food store.
I have not posted my labs in the past for input mostly because I am too lazy, but I think I will go dig them out and make the effort.
