After being diagnosed with gastroparesis, my gastro sent me to a surgeon to discuss a gastric pacemaker. The surgeon insisted on a 4 hour gastric emptying scan as opposed to the 2 hour scan. After I was xrayed the 1st and 2nd hour of the scan, the technician told me not to even come back until the 4th hour b/c she could see that nothing was moving. When I got the results back, it basically said that things were normal and didn't even indicate that I HAVE gastroparesis. The xrays, 2 hour gastric emptying study and other tests they did in the hospital previously showed that I definitely had GP and was put on domperidone (which I wasn't able to tolerate). How could they conflict? There's a clinic in town that has something that you swallow (with a microchip inside it or something) that tests transit time. I'm wondering if I should get a second opinion as something is definitely wrong - GP or not. Anyone know why such different results? And why the tech would allow me to skip the 3rd hour of xraying? I'm severely constipated, nauseous 24/7, no appetite, feel full after a bite or 2, have lost 20+ lbs and am underweight, have abdominal pains/cramping, vomit frequently and have a distended abdomen. I'm starting to have severe anxiety over my health issues as I have a lot of autoimmune issues and they continue to get worse. I buried my head in the sand for months, just wanting to die, but since I'm still here, I need to focus on my health and stop denying that something's seriously wrong. I also fear ovarian cancer due to familial history and am going to call my ob-gyn tomorrow too. I went from not dealing with any of this to pure panic. Anyone relate?
