This morning I had a follow up appointment with my GI doctor. Just to let you know I had an endoscopy in May after a night of drinking too much alcohol, and they found moderate inflammation.. gastritis. Pretty much my only symptom these days is abdominal pain. Can't seem to get rid of it. I've been taking Protonix and it has helped bring some relief. After reviewing the results of my gastric emptying study, the doc said the results were abnormal and I had mild gastroparesis. The stomach was emptying too slowly. She gave me a 15 day sample of dexilant and said to try that instead the Protonix to see how it works for me. She also prescribed Bethanechol, I'm supposed to take it before every meal to help with motility. I'm becoming so distressed, I have no idea what's going on with my stomach. It's becoming so hard to cope with the pain. I have a second endoscopy coming up on the 3rd... I'm nervous and scared. I feel like there's something else I could do to heal this up but I don't know :( any advice?
