i ve been diagnosed with gastroparesis, but i think my body is just slow in processing food. the problem that im having is constipation the inability to have a bowel movement. do people with gastroparesis suffer from this? if you do please let me know as this has been something that my doctors dont seem to understand. thanks. call me at 626-255-5218 or email me email@example.com. i have tried different things and they have me on medication for my gastroparesis (idopathic). I dont know if its because i have lost over 200 pounds in 1 year, my change in diet, from fast foods to healthy eating over 1 year ago. I used to weigh close to 500 pounds now im dont to 285. But recently i had constipation in late july felt full all the time and was having 1 bowel movemnet a day, with the constant urge to go but when i would sit down nothing would come out. Only in the morning after sleeping it would come out. I'm just confused, i have been reading and alot of my symptoms conincide with gastro, but no one with gastro talks about the inability to go to the bathroom #2. if some one can please clarify this that will be great. If people with gastro suffer from constipation. By the way i have tried several things like all fruit and vegetable diet raw and that has helped alot.
