Thanks for your response. I haven't been prescribed any iron pills yet. I have a pre op exam December 10th. Maybe that's when they will get into that. My surgery will be a robotic one. I hope it goes well. Both knees are bad so it's hard to know which one to do first.
Hi Chris. Just wanted to follow up with you on the vitamins. I did get some and took one in the evening and it was fine. However when I took one in the morning right after breakfast I felt really nauseous. I read where the iron can cause that. Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid that problem? I have read to take them with food which I always do. I bought a bottle at the pharmacy at our grocery store. They're Nature Made brand. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
Thanks for the suggestion of taking iron.. I am scheduled for my first TKR in February 2021. Did you have Robotic TKR? And was it at a Mayo Clinic?
