I get very drowsy after most meals, sometimes to the point of requiring sleep urgently. Thoughts?

In brief: Dumping syndrome?

It is possible that your body is emptying the food out of the stomach too quickly after meal and causes a large amount of carbohydrates/sugars to be absorbed too quickly.
.. Try smaller meals, and walk around after eating rather than sitting in place... If not better, check with your doc..
