The Medicine Cabinet-Ask the Harvard Experts: Risk of alcohol abuse increases after weight-loss surgery
Article - Have Surgery, Lose Weight, and Start Drinking

Of car-dancing and brain surgery, and another blog to be, I'm sure it will happen.

We got up at the crack of early and headed into the city for a neurology appointment today.  I told the doctor the truth about Brains Of Oatmeal while taking my current medication, and he swapped me to another medication instead.  I will wean off of Vimpat and move to Keppra.  I just took my first dose, and we shall see.  He mentioned that one of the most common side effects is The Very Cranky, and I mentioned that it's just as likely since I already Have The Very Very Cranky on Vimpat.


He asked me for the umpteenth time, was I opposed to surgery to fix my brains.  I said I was on the fence and that I would go ahead with the months of testing as a pre-surgical patient.
