Tee6759 My daily dealings of living with gastroparesis

Today was a new phase and the worst yet.

Aug 23 2011
It actually started last night.  When I was diagnosed July 18th, I was told to expect the nausea, pain, weight loss, and vomiting. So far, all had occurred except the vomiting. I was so hoping I wouldnt have to face the vomiting. I'd made it this far. But I was wrong. It struck last night with full force. I was so miserable, I could hardly stand.  I finally made it back to bed. I curled up, so miserable. I took my zofran, and finally made it to sleep later that night.  However this morning, it started all over again with a vengeance.  It was all dry heaves, lasting about 20 minutes. I felt so bad, my stomach hurt so bad, felt like someone was trying to pull my stomach up from the inside out. I couldnt get a break.  I called my gastro doctor and left a message with his office.  He called back very soon, and I explained what happened.  He stated he would leave some samples for me along with a script to help with the vomiting.  I was to call him tomorrow morning and let him know how things went. I had a appointment with my family doctor in an hour to discuss pain medications, so I would come by after that.  He stated that would be fine. He would leave them up front.  Its a good thing I got the script and had it filled.  I had another wave hit me not long after I got home.  I can only hope this doesnt last very long.  It hurts so bad when I am done, I just want to curl up like a little girl and cry.  Perhaps this will be it for the time being.  One can only hope, right?  I will write more later.  It is time to search for peace and quiet now, to let the meds do their job.
