So I'm being banded Friday and have a question. I Take a Multivitamin, B Complex, Fish Oil, Red rice yeast,and aloe vera, and sometimes Vit C. I feel they help keep me healthier. With 6 children I need all the help I can get. I also hear that hair loss is a problem so My question is as they are almost horse pills how do I get my Vitamins? What do you all do????? And Do I need to stop any of these before surgery?

Based on what I was told and what I have read, the vitamins during the first month need to be liquid or dissolvable. During the soft food stage they can be chewable.

I also take the Centrum multi vitamin.

After the 30 days pills can be tolerated as long as they are no larger than a pencil eraser and are washed down with a full glass of water or milk.

I hope others can confirm that is what they were told too!

I'm still looking for a way to get my fish oil... all the pills I have seen for it are pretty larger and can't be cut. <_<

Hope this helps.
