GASTROPARESIS IS DIFFICULT LIVING LIFE. I HAVE READ A LOT OF THE POSTS ON THIS PAGE I CAN RELATE TO EVERYTHING WRITTEN. I HAVE A PROBLEM DRINKING TO MUCH FLUID IT SITS ON MY WAIST AT TIMES WHICH MAKES ME SICK. I AM SO BACKED UP WITH FOOD. I CANT EAT A LOT DONT UNDERSTAND WHY I PRODUCE LARGE BOWEL MOTIONS I WISH THERE WAS A SOLUTION. FRUIT VEGETABLES FIBRE ARE NO THE WIND I HAVE IS CRULE MAKES LIFE HARD. SO MUCH FOR MY COMPLAINING. THANK YOU ALL FOR ADDING INFORMATION IT HELPS. TERESA

Hello @quiteachiver75

I can appreciate your dilemma about liquids and the problem of bloating. It has been suggested to me to sip water throughout the day and I also eat small potions, throughout the day. I never eat big meals.

Have you had any GI surgeries that might contribute to this problem?

I eat a lot of trail mix that I make with Costco Trail Mix, unsalted mixed nuts, dried crasins, m&Ms, dried apricots, …as a treat I eat a non-dairy avocado ice cream… As a Snack try celery or Napa cabbage with peanut butter on it..

Look up Crystal Saltrelli on google. She has a great website on gastroparesis and is a sufferer and “expert.”
