I had iron issues post-WLS until I went through the menopause.  Carbonyl or Polysaccharide iron were what my bariatric unit recommended.  They're the least abdominal apparently.

It helps to take some cheap and cheerful vitamin C with it to enhance iron absorption but be careful about bottled or carton juices, they can be loaded with extra sugar.

I can't advise on what dosage to take - best to follow what the doc. recommends but up the fluids - iron supplements can be constipating.
