Hi, I'm looking for help. I've been going back and forth all over the USA paying for flights, packing up, paying for high expenses too numerous times to say and always in the hope that "Yes, this time I'll meet the best MD, the one who will be able to truly understand what is wrong with me (Please God, I hope so) because if I have to add anything he or she will cross me off the list totally and I'll be listed on the "naughty/bad patient list." It may appear to be funny to some but I assure you that most of sadly do very much understandably very clearly this fine walk line in which we constantly walk. Basically I have been suffering from gastroparesis for at least 13 years and since I'm a woman in my late 50's now, the gastroparesis has become worse. I also have another little friend which goes hand in hand with gastroparesis which is slow transit study. What that means is that the waste in your body, the stool, can stay in my body for 2-3 weeks long which causes pain and distention. Thankfully I am taking some medications who can help but it's just like putting a band-aid on. So I'm appealing to anyone who will this to please write back if you have a specific Gastroparesis MD that indicates that on her/his profile and I will be eternally grateful! At the present time, I eat almost nothing, I drink so much water, my MD wants me to take Lactulose all day long which does clear out the intestines but I vomit the very little bit I eat from it at all. Thank you everybody for listening patiently to me! I am really just trying to feel so dreary, lifeless and so exhausted so often. I live life and I won't accept the answers of rude and indifferent doctors that this is it because I know better! Thank you all so very much!
