Hi, my 16 year old had an endoscopy and colonoscopy which revealed gastroparesis as abnormal amounts of food and fluid were found in her stomach having starved for 36 hours. Today she blew 87 on her Hydrogen Breath test with a starting baseline of 7.
Does small intestinal bacterial overgrowth cause gastroparesis or is it the other way around? Am confused as to whether this is now deemed the cause of the delayed gastric empyting? Been given two lots of very strong antibiotics but i am unsure of what the long term prognosis is. Is it a simple pop the antibiotics and she is better? or will the symptoms and problems continue?
We don't get to see the consultant for 6 weeks to discuss so feel fairly in the dark.
