Gastroparesis with severe symptoms!

I did have the stomach emptying study after they discovered the bezoar. My gastroenterologist didn’t think I needed to do the study because he said I clearly had severe Gastroparesis because of the monster in my belly! But I wanted to do the study because I read that it was the way Gastroparesis is accurately diagnosed.

So it doesn’t make sense to me that your study could be normal and then be diagnosed with Gastroparesis. But I’m not a doc!

My emptying study confirmed Gastroparesis— but moderate instead of severe like my doc suspected.

did they chop up the bezoar while in the stomach doing endoscopic exam or did they have to go back in with some kind of surgery? I am having endoscopy and colonoscopy in a few days and I hope I don't have one. It wouldn't totally surprise me if I do though. I am slow emptying liquids as well as solids and it has developed gradually over past 6 mo. to yr. Haven't had any tests yet. I have sloshing sounds for a few hours after rising from sleep, until get full enough of liquids and little food that it all goes silent much of the rest of the time. I also belch a whole lot, often loud and frequent. From what I read that is likely from food staying in transit so long it starts to ferment or something.
