Gastroparesis and Mayo Clinic

This is my first post on this thread and I will proceed to read
as many past posts as I am able before proceeding to the
Mayo Clinic next week. I am writing on behalf of a close friend
who has been on a liquid diet for nine months because anything
else regurgitates quickly. Her local doctor thinks she needs a
competent motility center to either do a botox on her lower
stomach sphincter muscle or else a pacemaker. This is all new
to us. She has been on the reglan protocol which helped awhile
but then ceased. She has lost much weight due to malabsorption
and inadequate nutrition and spends much time bedridden.
Any advice on the quality of the Mayo Clinic would be very much
appreciated as well as any general suggestions from those of you
who have already traversed this debilitating path. Thanks from
both of us in advance.
