Everyday is a struggle.
The last three months I have had a new medical issue rear its head. It is not new, it just got so bad that it could not be ignored or brushed under the rug by Doctors any longer. Here is the story about the night that put me in the Emergency room on December 14, 2012.
I Left the Emergency room that night with out any help.
I was told that my intestines were distended. I was also told that this was not life threatening & they could not do anything to help me. I could not believe that I was being turned away with no help other than being told to follow up with a Gastrointerologest and my primary care physician.
I was then set up to see a Gastrointeroligest, he ordered the following tests:
-Barium x ray
-Gastric emptying scintigraphy.
I now have a diagnosis of Gastroparesis.
I have an appointment coming up at the end of February with my Gastrointeroligest.He has informed me that there will be more medical testing to go through. At this point I do not know the cause of the Gastroparesis.
When I know more I will continue this artical to keep everyone up to date on what is happening.
