has anyone been diagnosed with gastrophoresis-hope that's spelled last endoscope about a month ago my md said i have this stomach emptying problem now.  I was on a liquid diet for some time waiting for my gastro to decide a second illeosecal resectioning was necessary.  he really didn't tell me much about it other than my stomach empties very slowly (he came to this because i still had residue in it despite the gi prep for the endoscopy and colonoscopy.  Is this thing easy to treat-does it go away after being treated??

Hello Erin.  First and foremost, I am sorry you are going through this.  I have found a useful website where you can read up on this condition, and treatments, and what you can do to minimize symptoms.  Please know, there is no treatement to cure it.  And, you were close to the right spelling...LOL...GASTROPARESIS.

I hope you find this information helpful.  Please feel free to let me know if I can do more for you!


Wishing you the best!
