What to expect from your surgery: Week 8

September 30, 2018

The (slightly belated) 8th week of the blog series focuses on a vital aspect of post-operation living. No need to worry though, you will find that this task is quite manageable. 

 

You will have to take vitamin supplements for life


This should be done in a controlled and scientific manner by your endocrinologist. These
supplements are not given to ‘make you feel better’. They are critical to your well-being and
in preventing the onset of deficiencies. It is essential to understand that we replace only
those elements and vitamins that would normally have been absorbed from your food by
the greater curve of your stomach and the first 80cm after the gastric outlet. You can’t
approach your chemist for replacements of your own choice. Please note that your vitamins
(with the exclusion of Calciferol) can’t be registered as chronic medication.
