What diagnosis
You say she has "this diagnosis"

What diagnosis is that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

gastro pseudo obstructiion

that does not really tell us much
Intestinal pseudo obstruction is usually cause unknown.

It acts like a bowel obstruction but there is no obstruction.

Does she have a feeding tube or G tube?

What type of doctor is in charge of her case?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no tube , seeing GI specialists who have orescribed ativan, regulan ? and finagan suppositories currently headed to er


I understand
What is your question at this point....exactly
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Tring to see if there is anything new or different that doctors might try nothing currently being tried is working


They key thing is a feeding tube if there is danger of malnutrition.

What I would due as an integrative specialist is as follows
Osteopathic manipulative therapy [you need a doctor of osteopath that does 100% of their practice as OMT], which can influence the autonomic control of the intestines and improve it.

Add acupuncture if need, by a TCM specialist...traditional Chinese medicine specialist.

These two together are often very successful in autonomic disorders.
