I was just diagnosed in mid-July. The surgeon feels this is my only option. Id never heard of such a thing before, muchless this condition. Im glad to see this support group and hope to be able to learn from, and contribute to the group.
I never heard of a stomach pacemaker until now. Is your condition called gastroparesis? I found the site for the manufacturer of the stomach pacemaker and it includes all kinds of info on this device. If your interested go to: http://www.medtronic.com/health-consumers/gastroparesis/index.htm
I have a device for controlling pain implanted in my spine which is made by medtronic. While I don't need to use it much anymore, the company has been great in helping support me through the process of getting and using the device.
Good luck and welcome to the site,
