I Have Bad Gastroparesis, Does Anyone Else Share This Experience?
I am 30 and I have had GP for about 3 years now but only properly diagnosed in August 2009. I am in hospital on average every month or so with severe vomiting attacks that take me down, make me ill and dehydrate me, I am in hospital for 4 - 9 days ata a time (I am also an insulin depndant diabetic) Here in Australia I have realised how ignorant Dr's and Nurses are to GP, half of them don't know what it is, I am seeing a Professor in GI soon and pray he can help me, my quality of life has deteriorated and and I too am so sick being sick and living in hospital.
I am on motilium (domperidome) at the moment and don't eat fibre, lettuce, proteins, nuts, or try not to eat anything bigger than a simple sandwich, If i overeat I am guaranteed to vomit within 8 - 24 hours and cant stop till I end up in hospital. I hate that I am only am 30 with 2 girls and I feel 60 half the time, I am so scare d to go places or book things incase of an attack. When I get one I can't stop it, and have NO choice but to be hospitalised where they inject every anti nausea medication possible into me.
I dont know what else to do, feels like my health (life) is crumbling and nobody seems to know what to do about it, I also get IBS, well thats the diagnosis so far which is just as bad, I would love to hear if anyone else has experienced GP to the extreme I am.....
