'Abnormally Slow'

Monday, October 01, 2012

Yup, that's me ... or at least my tummy's digestion. Wouldn't ya know? So, in other words, I do have Gastroparesis in a big way.

I know: Small meals, spread over the day.

New medicine.

Okay, I'll play this new game and try to get it working for me.

    I hope you're doing better.. I'm a type 1 diabetic and my doctor thinks i might have gastroparesis and wants me to try reglan. But not sure i want to try that due to side effects.
Feel better soon

    I'm so glad you found out what was wrong. Praying your new meds and the meal plan will help ease your pain. Just take it One day or (One meal at a Time). Stay focused and do what works for you. Love you babe.

    Oh, care bear! I am sooooo very sorry to hear you're dealing with this on top of everything else! Here's hoping that the treatment helps. YES you're right about the small, frequent meals. Pain in the butt, I know. But it does help.
