Re: Question for people with Gastroparesis
I have both gastroparesis as well as dumping syndrome which means my stomach decides to either empty slowly or empty rapidly which, the doctor at Mayo concludes that my stomach dysmotility is due to what food intolerances I have and depending on how my stomach processes the food will determine if it wants to work more slowly or more quickly.
Anyway, before I realized I had both conditions I had chronic diarrhea for years and years. Once the nausea started up in full force the bowel movements slowed down some to where sometimes I was only having a BM once every 2/3 days. But even that has since gotten better since I have added a digestive enzyme and probiotic to the mix. I am going now a couple times a day even.
I think it's true, one who only has gastroparesis (and not the situation I have where I have both slow and rapid emptying) tends to have few BMs because things are being held up longer in the stomach.
In your case it's hard to tell whether once a day means anything... what I do know is you very well still could have gastroparesis even if you are going only once a day.
