I have women's one a day tablets and I also have Centrum chewable tablets. I'm 3 days post op from vsg and on a clear liquid diet. How soon did y'all start taking your vitamins post op? Fortunately I'm not really having any problems with nausea yet. Just curious...
I started vitamins on day 3, but took only chewable or liquid vitamins for the first two months. I did take smaller pills (other meds) with my medical team's blessing starting at about 4-5 days post-op. (My medical team looked at how big the pills I planned to take were before giving me the OK.) But vitamin tablets are big, so I was wary of them until I was confident that my sleeve had healed.
I'm pretty sure I started up on them within the first week. I had to wait 2-3 weeks before taking ursodiol and those big calcium pills, though, since they were too big (I got some calcium chews, though, since they were easier - may have started up on those pretty quickly)
I started after the 7 day mark with 2 chewable multivitamins and 3 chewable vitamin D3 with calcium as well as my two regular medications. Also see my family Dr. once a month for B12 injection.
