Just a quick note about pills

Chewable multivitamins are better absorbed

Chewable multivitamins are better absorbed

After I had Step Two of my three surgeries, I was expelling waste rather quickly. Too quickly, it seemed. I was afraid I couldn’t adsorb anything so my surgeon recommended chewable vitamins. Although they seem childish, you can absorb them better because you’ve chewed them first!

Even now, after takedown, I still take 2 chewable vitamins a day, and, if I feel I need it, I take a chewable Imodium as well.

And, in case you’re wondering about the safety of taking Imodium after takedown (this is important, you should NOT be taking imodium if you are having a flare without your doctor’s approval), my surgeon said that some people take it 10 times a day! If you take it twice a day, like Mark, this news should make your morning and night routine seem a little better.

If you are concerned about your vitamin absorption, then, don’t be shy, grab the Flinstones and chew away!

    Some may want to consider Forvia too. Made for people w/ IBD/history of IBD. They make the chewable ones, which are what I take…

    I’m not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?

    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
