Hi all!

I know all doctors are different, but I was wondering what your doctors recommended after surgery as far as vitamins?

 

I was looking up the ones my dr suggested and they are pricey which  I expected but just curious what else everyone else was taking after their surgery.

 

Thanks!

I take 2 Bariatric Advantage multi with meals and 2 Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate w/vitamin D3 (spread out as we can only absorb the contents of one at a time).

My doctor prescribed pre natal vitamins. They are covered by my prescription insurance 100%. For calcium I take Citrcal petites which are calcium citrate.

Thank you for getting back to me!!

did you need the omeprazole or did your dr just suggest it?

My surgeon requires all bariatric patients to take it for 1 year post op.  The dosage changes depending on the patient I'm sure though.
