At this point there is hardly any way to tell whether the symptoms you describe have a direct causative agent such as disease or injury or are siimply the result of long term caloric deprivation.

I have seen very few boas recover from those conditions. When they lose that much of their normal body mass the skeleton degrades, kidney functions falter.. they don't even have the resources to properly digest what you feed them.

Very sad..
