This should be pinned.  I see this question a lot and it's an important one.

The potential deficiencies documented by the ASMBS and recommended for monitoring are:

B1, B6, B12, folate, iron, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, zinc, and protein

However, the list varies further by surgery; not all procedures have the same risks for deficiencies in the same nutrients.  Additionally, deficiencies for several of these are considered "rare" so a surgeon may in their judgment forego regular testing in the absence of related symptoms.
