I found out the hard way, that my daughter has gastroparesis. We found out the month of February 2008. I took my daughter to the primary dr, so she can her refill on her acid reflux meds. Primary dr. then has us make an appointment with the dr, he in turned listed very carefully on what my daughter had to say. With in a few days the dr scheduled her for an upper EEG, then later on an upper GI.
The EEG showed that she still had large amounts of food still in her stomach. Not good. The upper GI showed that she had delayed emptying in her stomach, small bowels and large bowels. Ok, so that answered some of our questions on what was going on. Dr that did the testing stated that this is nothing that he can do. frustrating to say the least.
After several weeks, a friend emailed me with some information about Gastroparesis, and a Doctors name. Called. THREE month waiting period. But I was happy to get her in.
