Has anyone with gastroparesis sought treatment at the Mayo Clinic in AZ?

Just want to know if anyone has had experience with either diagnosis/treatment at the Mayo Clinic.  Have been considering going in order to confirm diagnosis of gastroparesis here in Canada.

I see, well good luck to you! I've had GP for close to three years now and really the only way to control it for me is through diet. I didn't have any luck with the two medications that are given for it. I was diagnosed through my gastro doc, and I have not heard of any other treatments except the ones that are already out there, but maybe the Mayo clinic can help you.

I've been newly diagnosed with GP and wondered what exact diet your doctor put you on? My doc told me to go on a low-residue diet, which is helping some. Is there any other diet out there I can try?
 
VictoriaBC-If you go to the Mayo clinic and get help, please post about your experience! Good luck!

Hi there,
 
Back when I was diagnosed, the GI doctor I went to never discussed my diet with me. Basically he told me that if I took the Reglan, I would be eating bread in no time.  However, Reglan didn't work out for me, and now close to three years later, my diet consists mainly of pureed foods. Mostly smoothies, soups, yougurt, baby food fruits etc and I can eat some items that are put in the blender first. My GP is pretty severe, and has gotten worse over time.  If I don't eat anything all day, I can eat a small regular meal at dinner time. Back when I was first diagnosed, I scoured the web for GP diets and there are some out there, that also have recipies.
 
GP has been life altering for me, and I'm so sorry to hear that you have it as well.
 
P.S
 
Nuts, corn and broccoli are huge no no's! Plus for some reason with me, anything sugary makes my GP worse.
