Those are major issues...i do have great doctors but looking for something to help me through the pain and nausea
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Since your battery is non functioning, I am writing you some measures which may help you.

Gastroparesis or slow emptying stomach needs a very comprehensive management regime. Judicious and persistent intervention by various measures should be able to control the symptoms quite nicely. Following is the management plan.

1) nutritional modifications,

a) multiple small meals,

b) favor liquids over solids,

c) avoiding indigestible solids,

d) consuming low-fat meals

2) medications to stimulate gastric emptying,

a) metoclopramide,

b) erythromycin,

c) domperidone,

d) phenothiazines (prochlorperazine, thiethylperazine),

e) Ginger

f) Acupressure

g) Nitrates, buspirone, sumatriptan

3) endoscopic and surgical approaches,

a) Injection of botulinum toxin

b) gastric electrical stimulator implantation

c) surgical pyloroplasty

4) psychological interventions

a) treatment of anxiety and depression

b) biofeedback and/or hypnosis

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
