Gastroparesis with severe symptoms!

Hi,
I, too, have been diagnosed with Gastroparesis. I am struggling to figure out my diet. I am wondering if you would be willing to share with me what you eat and how often you eat. It is really a strange diet to try to get used too.
For my constipation my doctor said I should use a capful of Miralax every morning with my coffee. It has worked very well for me and is easy to take with my coffee. I would also be happy to answer any questions you might have of me. Thanks for sharing your experience with this disease.
Sandy

I saw a dietitian and was given a suggested diet. I eat only soft foods and try to chew each long enough to form liquid before I swallow. However, I still have days, like this morning at 3a.m. when I wake up cramping. I take a gas pill and Tylenol and get up and walk around for a while.
No foods seem to always work.
Miralax did not work for me.
I use the recipe given to me by a physical therapist. Two tablespoons before bed along with a small amount of milk of magnesia saline.
I also do a massage of my stomach and intestines to move the food along.
I am going next week to consult with a surgeon on having the endoscopy procedure done to make the opening to my Pyloric valve made larger.
I lost 30 pounds right away 3 years ago and seem to only be able to gain back 4 to 6 pounds.
Today I weigh 104.6.
