gastroparesis and intestinal dysmotility

Hi I wondered if anyone could help me after suffering problems my whole life I have finally been diagnosed with gastroparesis, intestinal dysmotility, excess acid, hiatus hernia, lax les and Ulcers I also have a partial annular pancreas, apparently isnt a major problem but has left my intestines at an angle.
I cant seem to find any real help my docs are clueless I cant find any triggers and its just getting worse. During a gastric emptying study,mri it was found I struggle to digest fluids more so than food. I am constantly dehydrated through all the vomiting. Despite being on lansoprazole 30mg twice a day I still vomit acid and have stomach and intestinal ulcers. I am also currently taking prucalopride for my gut motility, it has drastically reduced my pain but im still really suffering and the effects of the prucalopride seems to be wearing off. Im 25 and I am not able to work and im in constant pain, severe nausea, vomiting etc I just want some sort of life back, to manage these conditions somehow. I was on domperidone but it didnt do anything except cause more pain as did anti spasmodics.
I just wondered if anyone could give me any advice., any thing will be appreciated.
Thanks kirsty
