Re: stomach slow digestion pains, help!!

Sounds like GASTROPARESIS to me.

Check it out on google. There's plenty of sites out there geared toward this particular disease. It's quite similiar to GERD, but not so-- apparently it's a bit more serious.

I know about it because I have it along with other problems. It's pure hell and I can't have food at all. I am fed by a J-tube. I have 2 feeding tubes in me-- a PEG (for venting) and a J-tube (for medication & feedings).
It's my life.
Sometimes if my wt gets too low, and I'm a bit sick (labworks)-- they'll put in either a PICC or PORTs for additional help.

t'care
