Hi

Like Doodah, I am also a bypasser and only take a multivitamin once a day and my last full blood workup showed no deficiencies in any thing else so nothing needs to be topped up. Its my understanding that banding is not as drastic on Nutrient absorption that a bypass is so its likely a simple over the counter multi vitamin will do, although if you are female and above a certain age (Not saying you are by the way) then its worth adding a Calcium Tablet as well. You team should or should have advised you on this before surgery, give it 6 months and ask your GP to do a full blood workup for you, that will be the best way to show if you need any supplements, but in the mean time a general multivitamin will do you no harm at all.
