Preop response:

My surgeon said never take gummy. Chewable / liquid at first & whole form months later.

Mine also says no gummies but I can't remeber his reasoning.  I think it has to do with our sleeve not being able to break them down which inhibits absorption.

I take gummies and my labs are stellar, but all surgeons are different with their post op requirements.
