My sister has finally been diagnosed with Gastroparesis, I wanted to talk to others who have been diagnosed as well. What are some of your treatments for it and how do you deal with it every day.
A little background on my sister, she got really sick in February, she was later diagnosed with GERD with a hiatal hernia. She had a Lap Nissen done in April 2013; she was fine for about 3 weeks after her surgery. She somehow got a stomach virus and while in the hospital dealing with that she got C.Diff. It all went downhill from there, she has been to 3 different hospitals trying to figure out what was wrong with her, she was diagnosed with some many different things it was crazy. Well in July 2013 her surgeon found through and MRI that her stomach moved up into her Lap Nissen site so that is why she was having chest pain but and she had to have a Lap Nissen re-do on July 25th, 2013. Her surgeon had to cut her vagus nerve because it grew/healed to her stomach wall. Now this is how she got Gastroparesis. I don't yet know the percentage of her Gastroparesis but her doctors are trying to figure out what medicines to do and see how they will work.
I am really concerned for my sister because she has been dealing nausea and think she is just afraid that she will always have it. Any comments will be welcomed.
