Yes: Probably even more important as individuals with gastric sleeves and/or bypass are at a much higher risk of poor nutrition with the decreased food intake. Often surgery replaces healthy dietary change, and an already poor diet is magnified when volume decreased. Minimum for you is multivitamin, b complex, and 5000iu vit d daily, and 1000mg fish oil twice daily. Measure levels with your local doc!
