Hello everyone! It's been a while since i last posted!
To bring u all up to date, i am still walking around w/ the hernia which my surgeon will not repair until i can gain weight back to my origional weight of 100lbs.
I did mention last time that i had sought the help of a eating disorder specialist (EDS)since i had lost soooo much weight, had NO appetite and no urge to eat. I am also threating to flare with my ulcerative colitis right now on top of everything else.
Anyways, the reason i write, is that my new EDS is also an addictions specialist. Now, mind u, deep down, i know there is no problem, i take my meds as prescribed, have a good relationship w/ my PM, ect. However, i am soooo worried that someone of that profession would only feel one way towards pain meds??? Has anyone had experience with this? In session we have lightly discussed my chronic pain w/ my foot, and my current chronic pain w/ my hysterectomy, trapped nerve surgery and hernia repain, and current hernia, but im so worried that this doctor might see ANY long term use of pain meds as a bad thing? I have signed papers to allow him to speak to all of my doctors, including my PM, do u guys think this was smart, or should i have not? The EDS seems like a very nice, caring, understanding doc, but im terrified that he might say something that might make my PM jumpy??? I don't know....
anyways, insight would be helpful. hugs to you all!!!!
