This is Dr. David

it sounds like you need an implantable gastric stimulation (IGS) pacemaker for your stomach.

this will help stimulate your stomach muscles to contract to help push food down in the right direction.

it doesn't sound like your extended release medications are working at all.

I would get the gastric pacemaker implanted

let me know if you have questions.
