I'm new here. I was diagnosed with gastroparsis in 2005 following surgery for an obstruction in my abdomen and removal of gallbladder. I've had stomach issues my whole life, along with Asthma and allergies. I have taken many medications and I am searching for options I may not be aware of if there are any. Thank you
I have good and bad news for you, there is new treatments for gastroparesis but they being experimented in Arizona, Minnesota, and Florida, one is a Electrical device to help control your stomach muscles and the other is a nerve toxin to Help release food, if you want info let me know, there is a meds called Reglan, I don't know if you know about it but you could always ask your doc, hope you feel better:-)
Your condition may be as a result of damage to the vagus nerve which controls contractions of the stomach. You can manage the signs and symptoms you feel by restricting fatty meals, eating soft well cooked meals and eating small quantity of food at a time. Take in low fiber diet and low residual diet.
Drugs such as antidepressant (Mirtazapine) has proven to be effective in the treatment of such condition. Oral medication such as Metoclopromide (Reglan, Maxolon, Clopra); Erythromycin and Domperidon can also be used.
If you can afford an implant, then Gastric neurostimulators (stomach pacemakers) can be implanted.
Note that it is always available to talk to your Doctor. Take care.
