I was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis after years of acid reflux, barrets espophagus and other gasto problems. They did do the emtpying test and after 2 hours my stomach was still 100% full. Of course one of my symptoms was feeling of nausa and feeling full after eating a very small amount. The strange thing is the last 2 years I have put on weight. My gasto doctor says a lot of people do this because your food stays in your stomach therefore it doesn't metabolize properly. I've been going to doctor after doctor saying I was on weight watchers (even less recently) yet I was still gaining. I was put on reglan, but had side effects, and then put on donperidone from Canada and have had good results but I want to do something about my weight!As I read more about gastroparesis a lot of people sound very thin (which I have been my whole life) I look llike I am 9 months pregnant!! Has anyone overcome the bloating and distention that gastroparesis causes? Has anyone had the wweight gain? What did you do about it? Thanks
