My other half and I have had this discussion on more than one occasion.
He weighs about 295 and i weigh about 160.. We are both in chronic pain everyday due to similar back injuries.
We get about the same pain meds.. he tries to tell me that it takes him more to relieve his pain because of his size.
Yes, he is a whiz at science and says stuff like " If I have 2 beers and he has 2 beers , My blood alcohol would be higher, that I naturally agree with and do not dispute. And I would agree that the an anesthesiologist uses weight because he is putting you under deeply.
However, the pain meds.. I do not.. I know people lighter than the both of us whos dosage is more than ours .
I try to tell him that pain meds work on the brain, the part that tells you that you are in pain and pain meds block that.
That is has nothing to do with weight .
Any thoughts ?
