MAD ONE - do you have an iron deficiency? not every person develops it post-op, so i hope that your doc told you to take the iron because of a deficiency. it's possible to get too much, and the results aren't pretty.
As for the vitamins - my vote is chewable multis rather than liquid. YUCK on the liquid. nothing EVER worked for me to choke it down. Two SpongeBobs by Centrum tasted good and worked well for me. Somedays, if i feel like a real live adult [ahem!], i'll take the centrum adult chewables, but they don't taste as good as the SpongeBobs.
We know that i develop B12 deficiencies rather quickly, so i use the little tiny 1000 mcg melting tablets. sometimes i chew them, but most often i hold them under my tongue. One of my pharmaceutical buddies told me that the absorption was better that way, and since we knew i wasn't absorbing all that well through the digestive tract ....
