Pre Surgery Vitamins?
I am having a great deal of difficulty finding pre surgery vitamins (meaning they do not contain E, gingko and other ingredients that thin the blood). I have found two plastic surgery vitamin kits online but they sell for $60 to $80 each which is more than what they are worth. All I want is a multi vitamin without E but it has been impossible to find one outside the kits. I will be buying the arnica and bromelian seperately because it's cheaper to do that and I will be able to get stronger dosages. Please if anyone here can tell me where to get pre surgery vitamins (a basic multi) for <$30 share with me where to go. If one doesn't exist would it be best to buy each vitamin separately?

Welcome to the forum!!!

A basic mutlivitamin does not contain what you truly need pre-op or normally, as the recommended daily allowance is not what the body really requires (especially prior to surgery). Almost all US RDA are lower than what one should have for daily intake. There are also several other factors at hand including sex of the individual, what your diet consists of (best way to get vitamins and minerals), are you on any medications, and what has your doctor specifically recommended. The last variable is most important. If you want to PM me, I can tell you where to obtain the vitamins you require. Please make sure you know exactly waht your surgeon specifies.

Yes, please make sure you know exactly what your surgeon does and doesn't want you to take. In addition to the vitamin E, there are many other things which should be avoided (because they thin the blood and that can cause bleeding problems during surgery).
