I sent and wrote another blog but I don't see it posted so I don't know what is going on.
I do appreciate all you and your helpfulness, at this time I am just going to keep on with the stomach botox surgery, if I have another bout of trouble. Then I will consider other things.
I like to have control of me, and anything that doesn't allow that I do not like. reglan did that, so does percoset and that works well for my pain levels, but I cannot do anything when I take it. Which isn't a great quality of life, I do have neuopathy, from type I diabetes, and that is basically what the gastroparesis is from at least they think so.
My options are pretty narrow. If the gastroparesis was just a painful stomach then the pain aspect would be maybe ok but with the neuopathy, well my stomach just doesn't work at all, so my stomach just gets stretched and it is now 5 times larger than most men's, So it is also effected the way my food which at this point gets digested in my small intestine, which the doctor thinks is effected by the gastroparesis as well. From the diabetes and lupus well we have to add, parkinsons, and fibromyalgia, so like I said I live with pain every day all the time, sometimes when I have extra pain like my spinal issues well then I have to take something to help. I have to take to much medicine as it is, and I don't like what I have to so I am not going to jump up and down to take another. But I really do appreciate all your thoughts and advice. Really. Take care all. Blessings, Diana
