... episodes (nausea and severe vomiting/dry heaving) lasts up to 7 to 10 days nonstop. Then he'll have relief for a few weeks and it starts all over again. I was wondering if this is the same with everyone else that has GP? Thanks
He is probably dehydrated too. Need to be sure he drinks gatorade or something to keep his electrolytes in balance, especially when he is vomiting. Best to keep him hydrated at all times. These episodes sound like flares. See if his dr. will prescribe him zophran or phenegren or something for the nausea. Ginger is also good. Maybe you can catch it before the vomiting starts. I have gastroparesis, and right now I'm living on Ensure milkshakes and protein powder, pudding, juices and almond milk. Can't eat anything solid without causing pain in my stomach and nausea.Stay away from most fat and eat small meals. No red meat very very little fiber--stays in stomach too long and causes symptoms. He may want to stay on liquids a couple of days then move to Ensure a couple of days then move to soft foods.That's what I have done, and it has worked out well. Hope this helps
My husband has been having issues and he has type 2 diabetes. He is going in for the egg test Friday to determine if he has GP or not (hoping not!) he has an episode of nausea and vomiting that last like 12 hours and then he is generally fine for the next two weeks and then it hits him again. My question is does GP progress and become worse in time or just affects everyone differently? seeking some type of answer. Please help!
