does anyone have or know someone with gastroparesis?

I was just diagnosed with it, and my GI Specialist cant see me till september, and the physicians assistant said he cant say much except to eat small light meals because the GI dr has a conservative approach. Any idea what that might mean?

I'm really sick, i am living off of gatorade and boost nutritional drinks right now and can barely keep those down. It'd be great to talk to someone that knows anything about this.

  • Have you found any answers? I have this too and completely understand your frustration. None of the medicines are helping and my GI dr is wanting to try another med that the US pulled from the market that you can get with special permission. My primary dr wants me to goto a motility dr and is searching for one now. I have lost 50+ lbs since Jan. I hope you have found some answers.
