Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"Oh Mary!! So good to hear! It will keep getting better- mine did not take full effect until about 6 months so it's great that you have already noticed a difference! I wish you the best of luck and hope you can get back to your exercise soon…"

Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"So good to hear. I hope it helps. When I got mine, they put a jpeg in at the same time so i could gain some weight while i waited for it to fully kick in. i only did nighttime feeding and ate what i could during the day. I was able to start eating…"

Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"That is definitely one thing I have learned and had to accept over the years with gastroparesis. Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches! I have had to modify my life at points and things may take longer than I had planned because of…"

Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"Well keep me posted if you don't mind! It's hard to find people with GP who exercise as much as I do so it would be nice to share stories!"

Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"I know that success is different for everyone, but I was at the same point you are. I needed to eat and was worried about my future (holding a job, etc). I had tried everything else and this was kinda my last resort. While I am not saying my life is…"

Sarah replied to mar's discussion 'gastric neurostimulator and exercise and insulin pump' in the group Gastroparesis
"I think it has to be a VERY strong magnetic field- so drills are ok. The only time I have to be careful is airport security, and I usually get a pat-down or go through the x-ray machine if they are available. But no metal detectors at the airport! I…"

Sarah replied to Rebecca's discussion 'morning pains in my stomach' in the group Gastroparesis
"Coffee in itself will make me nauseous sometimes or have stomach pain. Maybe try eating something with the coffee? Also, mornings are always the worst for me and the GP symptoms get better as the day cont."

Sarah replied to Patticake's discussion 'What is out there to aleviate symptoms?' in the group Gastroparesis
"I had the pacemaker surgery in 2005. It took about 6 months for it really to take effect, but my life has changed immensely. I rarely throw up and only occasionally get nauseous. I used to be in the hospital with severe vomitting 2-3x per month and…"

Sarah commented on Michelle Reinhardt's group 'Gastroparesis'
"I don't know how to comment to a specific post.....but in reply to gastric stimulator, I have one. I got it in 2006 and it is the best decision I ever made. It took about 6 months to start to work but now I only throw up a few times a year (i…"

"I think either one would be great! No matter what you choose you will definitely learn a lot! I had never done a tri before and it was fun to try something new! And if you do the cycle I will get to meet you in August!"
