Dr. Pamela I am bipolar, schizoaffective, I have an eating d/o, severe emotional pain. Are meds enough?
No, not enough: I'm sorry to hear you're in severe emotional pain. Schizoaffective disorder can be very painful in itself, even without an eating disorder too. Medications are only partial treatment for these conditions, and psychotherapy is very important also. Please ask your psychiatrist about this; s/he should know about helpful referrals in your area for individual and even possibly group work. Be well. ...Read more

Patella dislocation: Difficult question. If you were adequately and completely rehabilitated following the first episode and dislocated again then surgery may be a better and more conservative answer to prevent further damage.
