gastroparesis anyone after surgery????

I had a laparoscopy Feb. 02, with mild gastroparesis immediately following, & then full blown gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying) after my full abdominal hysterectomy Aug. 2002. Has anyone else had this happen??? Debbie

Hi Debbie While I haven't experienced it myself, gastroparesis is a fairly common condition, and I expect it happens after surgery a lot more often than we realize. Often the symptoms can be pretty mild, and would be masked by the general discomfort felt after surgery.

What has your DR done to help with this? Have you tried frequent, very small meals, very little in the way of fats or high fiber foods? There are also meds that can encourage the stomach to empty more frequently.

Here's a great link for information on gastroparesis, its symptoms and treatment:

I hope this helps!

Debbie,

I was not diagnosed with this after any of my surgeries, but I do find it interesting that it seems to take our systems a while to kick in after surgery. I hope they are able to get it under control now that they have diagnosed it. Please keep us posted. I hope you find relief soon.

Big s,
lenee

Debbie,
I have not been diagnosed with this, but after reading the link that Linda provided I do have alot of those symptoms. I've been to many GI docs and had many tests, most of them come out normal. I think I am going to print out the info for my next doc visit.

Are you still experiencing symptoms? Are the docs doing anything for you? I'm really interested in hearing more about this.
