It has been a week after my surgery and I am officially released to go back to work....the problem is I am sooo dizzy. I am going to take a few extra days without pay hoping it will help. How long does it take for that to go away? Is it normal? Haven't seen too many posts on dizziness as a side effect.

Are you getting enough fluids? You may be dehydrating. also your blood pressure should be checked as it may be low. I had problems later on with dizziness and it contributed to both. I was persistent about getting my blood pressure checked and why so low. Finally was put on BP med and is back to normal. After a couple of weeks, dizziness receded. Please check with your physician!
