84weeks (20months) post my 1st op and 54weeks(12months) post my 2nd operation-

Gosh well what a busy busy 2 weeks! I haven't really had time to think to be honest, to start with I had my mental health assesment the day after I posted last well let's just say that was eventful and not what I was expecting at all, with everything that is going on and with my age they are reffering me to a eating disorder consultant, as they only have a eating disorder nurse (I'll see her too!) and they feel I need more help, with the bmi I had (17) they wanted to admit me into the hospital for a few weeks but because I said no, they have sent their home treatment team around my house twice a week untill I am able to be n outpatient again, the doctoring saw also has put my name on the waiting lists for a bed on 2 separate eating disorder units as she feels it would really benefit me, because my bmi isn't 16.5 or below they thankfully can't force me so it's my choice:). The doctor also upped my flouxetine upto 40mg and I aim struggling tocope as I'm so tired and drained which I wasn't before hand, I've also saw my dietitan on Thursday (4days ago) and she has gave me some great tips on how to up my food intake and face my many fear foods!:) I also have somehow managed to gain 1.4kg!! Which everyone says is good! I'm 41.4kg now, I'm not so sure on how I feel about it as I haven't ate any more than I was before... Hmmm
I had my ct scan on my lower back Monday, hopefully we will get the results back sooner rather than later as my back is super sore:(

There's not much else going on with me ATM, as you can tell I lead a very very exciting life....not!!!

82weeks(20months) post my first op and 52weeks(12months!) post the second-

Wow I've been quite busy the past few weeks doing a number of things so I haven't had much time to post anything. Well where to I start?

On the 4th march I tuned a year post my second operation, I cannot believe a year ago I had my left rod trimmed! It doesn't seem that long ago at all. I feels just like yesterday that I was nervously going into the hospital for te second time!

My back is still very achey and sore and I do get pain at the bottom, sadly my GP still won't give me anything and I've been told now just to take 1 paracetamol! If 2 doesn't work, what good would 1 do? Not much :(,I still can't get gabapentin for my nerve pain nor have I had an appointment for my ct scan on my lower back.

I have a mental health assesment tomorrow, I'm not looking forward to it at all, I've lost more weight so I'm now 40kg, so my CBT therapist rang my GP as he was concerned and she was also concerned so she's refered me to get more hope, they hope I can get help from the eating disorder service as my CBT therapist has already made the specialist aware of my case apparently:/

I'll update you all on the outcome of things in the week:)
