Just wondering if any of you subliment with iron everyday? In other groups some say to do it and some don't think it matters. I just don't want a nasty suprise a few years down the line. Doc put me on Slow Fe for a few days (with concrete butt side effects) and then said I didn't need to take it. My blood levels showed me as being the very bottom of the range. And I read, on another site, that we can't absorb the type of Iron in Slow Fe.
So, any advice? How much do you need to take a day? My doc's handouts still say post opts can get away with flinstones and TUMS. He's a great surg. but I'm not impressed with the follow up.
Almost two months post op and 3lbs shy of being down 50lbs. Still have lots to learn but I'm feeling better.
Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day!
