unexpected side effect of losing weight


Recommended Posts

So, after weight loss surgery I've lost 63lbs, and gone from a BMI of 41 to a BMI of 29 (so far). Which is great. But today I took a vicodin after some dental work, and WHOA!  Totally knocked me on my butt! I used to take it all the time for dental work and it never had this effect on me before. I had to go lay down finally and take an hour nap during the worst of it. Even now, 4 hours later, I'm a bit um..fuzzy. 


Needless to say, no homeschooling is getting done today. Thankfully my teen was able to watch the kids both when I was at the dentist (over 3 hours!) and when I napped. I guess I should have realized....a glass of wine can totally make me drunk now, so probably the same thing, but I just didn't think about it. Think I'll take half a pill next time, if there is a next time!
