Hi
I m dr Alok, please to answer your health related queries today
Yes,you are right. May be you have vitamin d deficiency. It is very common all over the world and especially after gall bladder, stomach and intestine surgery.
In my practice, I usually supplement all of my patient with monthly vitamin D (60000U).
Just check your vitamin D level and if there is any deficiency, take vitamin D supplement
Hope this will help
Take care
