: Gastroparesis alone is bad enough. My 10 year old has gastroparesis and had her gallbladder removed a year ago. She has been in bad shape. Nauseated all the time. So severe that she is bedridden at times. She is always so white looking. She is on Reglan and Ery(antibiotic. This seems to be giving her some relief. She has good days and bad days and worse days. Did you know that John Hopkins University is currently doing test on the drug Viagra (yes Viagra) for diabetic gastroparesis. They did the study with diabetic mice and the drug cured gastroparesis. They are testing the drug on humans as we speak. I hope this is the miracle drug. It does not appear to have the horrible side effects of Propulsid or Reglan. Good luck.
