Sun, Jan 27 3:51pm · Has anyone suffered or heard of gastroparesis? in Digestive Health

I had nissen fundiplication in 2015 for hiatal hernia repair. Apparently the vagus nerve was damaged and after gastric emptying test I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. This is a life changing disease for which there is no cure. I continue to try to manage it and some days are better than others.

I got gastroparesis after hiatal hernia repair surgery. I believe the vagus nerve was damaged during surgery. I understand that acupunture can be helpful. I haven’t tried it but I plan to. I still struggle every day with nausea and gas pains. Some days are better than others. I take Zolfran for nausea and sometimes it works quite well and other times not so much.

Have you pursued medical malpractice against the surgeon?

I have gastroparesis after hiatal hernia repair surgery (nissen fundaplication). I take zolfran as needed for the stomach pain. I also get some relief from gasX. I am very careful about my diet. I avoid any raw fruit or vegetables. I also try to eat a low fat and low fiber diet. I have low energy and depression as a result of this disease. It has changed my life. I used to travel extensively but now I am limited because of dietary needs. I have learned to live with this but it is a challenge!

Yes, I had food poisoning and of course could not throw up. Gastroparesis is a terrible disease and it is very difficult to get a doctor to listen. If they can’t fix something surgically, they aren’t interested.

I have gastroparesis as a result of the Nissen Fundoplication. I have considerable difficulty with gas and bloating as well as nausea. My diet is limited and even when I am careful I still have problems sometimes. Also, being on a very low fiber diet has created constant constipation problems. This disease has changed my life.

I had PMR and was on prednisone for 18 months. The side effects were terrible, especially the weight gain. I did not experience any difficulty tampering off. I started at 20 mg and went down to 2 mg. Fortunately I have been in remission for over 3 years. Please check with your physician after tapering off. You may not be ready. I do recall the the awful pain before I started on prednisone.
