i have been very illsince i had my gullbladder taken out two yrs ago. my dr and i she is from texas tech are considering the gastric pace maker as my stomach is moving really slow now. I just wanted some imput on if i should do this or not.

I too am a gasltroperisis patient of Dr. Abell's.<br />

I live in Kenai Alaska and I have traveled to the University of Mississippi Medical Center twice. The first time for a temperary pacer that gave me less than desirable effects and the second time, in 2009, And again had dissappointing results from the temperary pacer, but I still elected to have the perminant pacer implanted.<br />

This was the best decission of my life. It changed my life.<br />

Dr. Abell has been .... well, mere words can't describe how awsome he has been. Caring, kind, understanding.....and very very proffessional.
