As I inch ever so much closer to my Bypass Surgery, I am beginning to freak out about the Vitamins I need to take after Surgery!! When I attended the last Class at my Surgeon's Office, they gave us some samples of the Vitamins that they promote and sell. They are pictured above and called Bariatric Advantage.
Well....they tasted nasty!! I couldn't even chew them up and swallow them completely, I had to spit them out!! So I asked my Cousin Lisa, what Vitamins that she takes, and she takes the Vitamins from her Surgeon's Office (Celebrate)(below).
Lisa also tells me that hers aren't much better!
So I was hoping that some of my Blogging buddies that have had the Bypass or Sleeve Surgery could help me out by suggesting a better tasting alternative to what I have access to. Yes, I said better tasting. After the Surgery, I won't be able to swallow extra large pills as most Multiple Vitamins are, so I will need to chew them up!
Do you purchase yours through your Surgeon's Office? Or do you purchase them online or through a store like GNC??? Please Help Me!! Have you found any that actually taste good? Are there any good Multivitamins, Calcium, Iron, etc that are in Gummy form that are the equivalent to what is sold in the Dr's Office's??? I can buy Gummy Multi Vitamins at Costco, but they aren't even close to being equal, to the horrible chewable's from the Dr's Office. I would have to take 2-3 of them to be equivalent!
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated! And the sooner the better!! LOL As my Surgery is only 5 WEEKS AWAY!! Hoping for some good suggestions (and I am afraid that it is in vain)....till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
