How long will I have to take vitamins after surgery?
Updated: May 18, 2019
Taking vitamins will be a life long necessity and cost after bariatric weight loss surgery. It is very important because after surgery, you will have something called "malabsorbtion." This means that you will not absorb as much of the food you eat, lowering your vitamin and mineral intake. Your daily vitamin routine will vary depending on the type of weight loss surgery you get. The cost of vitamins can be anywhere from $30 to $80 a month depending on vitamin brands and surgery choice. Vitamins are sold in our office for convenience. However, if cost is an issue please let us know, and we will help guide you to a more fitting option.
