Re: Vitamins after surgery?
I agree with the above suggestions, and be sure to take calcium along with vitamin D - if you only take Vitamin D without taking calcium, it could cause your body to leach calcium out of your bones and put it into your bloodstream. I actually take calcium magnesium as that will prevent you from getting majorly constipated as just straight calcium can do, especially after a surgery.
There are 2 types of vitamin D - vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. D2 is plant based and will only last in your body for 2-3 weeks, and D3 is animal based (which our bodies produce) and it will last for 2-3 months in our bodies. D3 is the better one for us to take, so be sure the one you get is D3.
I had a surgeon after a fusion recommend I take 1,000 units of L-Arginine for at least 6 weeks as that helps with better bloodflow and therefore better healing. That same surgeon also had me take a daily multivitamin.
