I Have Gastroparesis
I have gastroparesis too and have had it undiagnosed and untreated for the past 6 terrible years! My gastric emptying time is 5+ hours and I suffer from chronic constipation--it takes all morning and into the afternoon for the bowels to finally move, but I never get the emptied feeling, so I'm always plugged up and always bloated and in really bad discomfort and some pain in the lower right abdominal area.
Can anyone out there comment on any of the therapies--natural and allopathic-- that have helped in any way? Any comments on gastric electrical stimulation, or on any of the herbal formulas including Pertenton (from New Zeland), Trenical, Pranofax, Gastrotab, Segratax, and the homeopathic preparation Astratin--all of which are advertized on the internet???
Are any of them helpful and worth purchasing???
