After surgery it is extremely important that you continue to take your vitamins as directed by your provider. Each recommended vitamin has a purpose. For instance:
- Calcium is necessary for maintaining bone health and helps prevent fractures.
- Vitamin B12 nourishes the nervous system.
- Iron carries oxygen throughout the body.
Without these necessary vitamins, you risk bone fractures, memory loss, numbness, paralysis, stroke, heart attack and anemia.
