One of the reasons I chose to go through the weight loss surgery process was to be able to stop taking a lot of the pills that I was on. My arthritis won’t bother me as much when I weigh less. My acid reflux won’t be as big a problem. I won’t take medicine for blood sugars. I won’t have high blood pressure medicine to help with my migraines. I won’t even need my C-pap machine! It turns out that still, I’m a Pill Popper.
Most of the pills I am currently on, I will be off of before my actual surgery. Having less of a stomach means I will have a few issues absorbing nutrients from my food so I will have supplements for the rest of my life.
- Chewable multivitamins, twice a day.
- Vitamin B12 disolvable.
- Vitamin D
- Calcium with Vitamin D.
- Ursodiol for six months to prevent gall stones.
- ooh – and Benefiber.
Any pill I take will now have to be small, no larger than an eraser on a pencil. If I have to take a capsule, it will have to be pulled apart and mixed with water or added to pureed food. After 4-6 weeks of my surgery, I can go back to “normal” sized pills.
Vitamin D is much better for me than Celebrex (a NSAID medication) so I have to look at the upside of things. Yes, I will always have to take pills from now on but they are vitamins instead of medications that simply treat the symptoms of an issue. I will be fixing the issues themselves!
Are you a pill popper? What kinds of vitamins and supplements do you take each day?
