Hello Everyone,

I have received 9 Gastroparesis Progressional Timelines. If you are interested in sending in yours, you can read my blog entry here:

http://emilysstomach.blogspot.com/2013/05/progressional-timeline-of-gastroparesis.html

It will give you directions for different formats, tell you what this research is for, what kind of information to include, and it will tell you where to send your Timeline to.

I am determined to find a common link or anything that connects us. I will be glad to publish a research paper based on these timelines when I'm done.

I need a variety of timelines to have a good enough sample to conduct research with.  I am missing Timelines for guys, diabetics, and kids who are strong in the fight of #gastroparesis .

The more timelines I have from different types of people, the more thorough the research will be.

Keep in mind that this research may be a stepping stone for better treatment, awareness, research, and new technologies to help treat us. But, I can't do that without all of your help!

Thanks to those of you who sent theirs in already. It is much appreciated! ♥

Emily

I had mine out in 2010, and then was diagnosed in 2012 with GP.  I just find it interesting.

My Blog: www.emilysstomach.blogspot.com.   If you are looking for tips on what do next if you're newly diagnosed, it's in my blog.  I have also documented tests that I could almost not find on the Internet in detail.  Additionally, it contains resources that would be useful - like financial assistance and support networks.  United Healthcare even uses my blog as a resource for their #gastroparesis patients.

A new blog entry.  I am requesting people's progressional timelines since being diagnosed with #gastroparesis .   I wrote down all of the instructions and what I'm looking for in my new blog entry. 

I hope you will consider emailing in your timeline.  Maybe, between us all, I can get a doctor to fund a study while using our research as a stepping stone.  We just might open the door for other things.  I choose to remain optimistic!

How on earth do I stop the rollercoaster my blood sugars ride when I have gastroparesis ? Tired of fighting them. And doctors here obviously have no idea how gastroparesis affects my BGs.

Same here. I am a brittle diabetic, and have Gastroparesis. It can be a nightmare.

Was Dx last fall and has slowly gotten worse. Lately been going diarrhea every 45-60 mins with moderate stomach pains and gas. Tried small meals but that was not much help. Now trying more of a liquid diet oh joy. Any advice or hope?

This will help.  This is a website I helped create for the Green's Not Easy Facebook Page and it has the GP diet in it already: gnewithgp

About this community

The goal is to spread the word about Gastroparesis so that we can get funding for research. Gastroparesis is a debilitating stomach disease that literally means paralysis of the stomach. One of every 62 people in the united states alone (about 5 Million Americans) have been diagnosed with Gastroparesis. No awareness, no funding, no research. Spread the word!

Some of us will stay inside and hide from the people, parties and food. Others will venture out side of their comfort zone to try some food, knowing they may get sick. Why would they do that? Simply because they want to feel ‘normal’ and fit in.

What ever you decide to do today, I hope you have a good day and enjoy it to the best of your ability!

Wishing you all a wonderful day, no matter what you decide to do.  Rather, what your body tells you to do.  Hugs to you all!!  <3 Melissa

This is my very first post on here, just spent fourteen days in the hospital with a line infection with both bacteria and fungus in my blood stream. They put in a new Hickman once my cultures were clear for forty eight hours. I can't tolerate any tube feeds at all, my surgeon came to see me and said he thinks we've exhausted all of our efforts and still can't find a reason why my intestines have failed, but at this point it doesn't matter anymore. He is making calls to hospitals that do intestinal transplants and working on getting insurance to cover everything. He told me that I've already qualified one of the requirements since I've had so many line infections. I'm really scared because I have a two year old that needs his mommy back, I'm twenty seven and when I can muster up the energy to get out  of bed and go out somewhere with my husband and son I have to use my new wheelchair. I'm just scared and yet excited...this transplant would give me the life I had back with a few changes, tough changes, but to be able to chase my baby at the park is worth it.  Sorry just needed to get everything off my chest.

The top picture is from Christmas, 2011.

The bottom picture is from two weeks ago.

The doctor doesn't believe that I've lost weight.  facepalm

I just put on my favorite pair of jeans and they're two sizes too big now. I can take them off without unbuttoning them. I thought about taking this pair to my GI doctor to MAKE him pay attention to the fact that even though the scale says I've lost no weight that my pants and bra disagree. I'm usually bloated when I go in - so the scale reflects that. =/
