What can I do when in a gastroparesis flare?

Well, I'm back at square one. Mayo will not take me on as a patient. Bummer. Now I need to find another place closer than The University of Iowa Hospital, which is 5 hrs from where I currently live. I live in NW Iowa, I'm far away from everything. I am feeling lost right now. Mayo is the best, and I hoped that would work. I'm not sure why I wasn't accepted.

Lily,
Did they give you a reason as to why you were not accepted?

I have Gastroparesis. I found that learning belly breathing, along with other exercises to strengthen my stomach wall helped a lot. I also take 2 tablespoons of a mixture of oat bra, applesauce and prune juice before bed along with a small amount of
Milk of Magnesia Saline. This has stopped my constipation issue which was horrid.
I have continued on the diet I was given for IBS-C two years before the Gastroparesis diagnosis. I am better then I have been in the last 3 years. I still can’t gain my weight back. I do have flares but not nearly as often.
