I can't address the asthma problems you are having, but I just wanted to let you know you are not alone with the gastroparesis. I have it in addition to Gerd, and now I found out I have gallstones too. It is really difficult to know what causes my pain - lol. I am able to take Reglan - sorry you couldn't. I don't like the side effects, but it helps.
I am curious hearing about the surgery your doc wants to do. I was concerned about the Nissen procedure since what I read it was not really a good procedure for patients having gastroparesis. Did you notice any relief (or problems) after the Nissen procedure in relation to the gastroparesis, or just relief of the Gerd symptoms?
Do you know the name of the procedure your doc wants to do? Sorry so many questions, it is not often that I have run across someone that has gastroparesis to discuss it with.
I am sick of feeling sick all the time - I know you can relate. I am sick of taking pills all the time. I would like some permanent relief of this, and after reading your post it sounds like there might be a procedure that addresses both issues in one.
Take good care -
