Well, I had the botox treatment done for my gastroparesis today. Here’s hoping it will help with the symptoms until I can get a more permanent answer! Is anyone else dealing with the gastroparesis??
The question, my friend, is anyone NOT dealing with gastroparesis! That was my VERY FIRST symptom, actually (everything went south pretty rapidly after that, though). I was working ALL DAY on the patent for the medication for us. You’ll love it. Works like a charm. Please hang in, if at all possible. I was able to dump 4 LARGE tupperware containers of diarrhea/constipation medications recently. It’s amazing to NOT have that problem any more. Mine got so bad that I was in the hospital twice. Gads. I took a photo of myself — looking about 7 months pregnant with distention. That is THE WORST. The doctors were clueless (we’re used to that, right?). I knew if I wanted relief (believe me, I WANTED RELIEF), I knew I was going to need to figure this out on my own. Sigh. Until I did, I had Miralax everyday. That was probably the most help, but there were times that NOTHING worked. NOTHING. They say that no one is more motivated than the affected, and I believe that is true. I promise to keep working as hard and as fast as I can, OK?
