Does anyone have any experience with any GI docs in St. Louis? I just want to be able to meet a great doctor right from the start. I had a total colectomy this past June. Currently, I am still having problems going to the bathroom, but also this past month I finally found out another reason why my left abdomen, chronic nausea, etc. has been happening so severly the past few years as well. I suffer from a severe case of gastroparesis (maybe there should be a gastroparesis support group on healingwell). So, right now my surgeon's office in Springfield, IL has been looking for great GI docs who specialize more in motility disorders. we found one docs name, Dr. C. Prakash Gyawali, who specializes in gastroparesis and this new procedure of gastric stimulation pacemaker. I just want a consult with a doctor, but I want him to be nice, too! Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much!
