Vitamin B-12 for Those With RC's

11 years 9 months ago #11845 by Gene Beane
Joe, Vitamin B is known to help heal nerves that have been disturbed by the aggravtion of lymph node removal. It is primary for that purpose in these r/c patients who have suffered nerve damage. The physical therapist treating my husband said the Vitamin has been proven to help. Tomorrow we see Dr. Campbell, I will get his opinion on it as well... Exercise has to be done for the particular muscle and nerve that has damage, you can't just jump on a machine and whale away,,,you have to treat the nerve and muscle involved first.Ginger Beane

Hi there
when I had my RC I did not get B12 supplements or shots, I then a couple of months later was reading about the fact that RC's cause B12 deficiency because the terminal ileum used is the thing that absorbs B12. I had my doc test my B12 and it was terribly low. I started on the sublingual B12 vitamins, Swiss I think they are and the sublingual is best absorbed in the vitamin realm, and then I had my B12 tested again after a month on them and it was normal so I have stayed on the B12 sublingual cherry flavoured, I think it is SWISS who makes them, I just buy them with all other vitamins, and they do the trick for me. The doctor said if they did not work he would give me injections but they worked perfectly, I just take one a day.

Joe ...it has absolutely nothing to do with eating...its with absorbtion and the part of the body responsible for the absorbtion has been used for the reconstruction therefore you can eat all the great Bl2 foods you want and you will not get the benefit of the vitamin. We're not making this up............

I've never had a problem with enemia.
Take a One a Day.

My levels have never dropped below normal, even after 5 years.

Eat better...this is a great excuse to do so.

Rosie..honestly i think they all have one or two if not more to dismiss them...really you have to be so proactive about anything....doctors are so quick to attribute anything a woman has to her hormones or "all in your head"..... >:( Pat
