Thank you, I’ve never tried anything but chocolate and it had such a weird taste to me. I’ll try the vanilla and strawberry! I’m so sorry you have CIP that causes all of those issues for you. I’m limited on what I can eat with Gastroparesis but at least I can eat some regular food. And it was so hard for me to get used to eliminating so much — I can’t imagine what it’s been like for you!

@beanglow I hope your appointment goes well on the 19th. Like I said before, I feel like domperidone must be helping me in combination with the very low fiber diet because I’m better than I used to be. It supposedly helps the stomach contract to move food. I hope it will do the same for your CIP. I don’t know what I’d do if I had to live on Boost or any other brand of those nutritional drinks! They gag me — just can’t get them down! Do you have a favorite flavor?

It’s used worldwide (except in the USA) and it’s over the counter in many countries.

@beanglow Sorry for delay. I got Domperidone thru http://www.canadadrugsonline.com. I’m so surprised that someone else said they got it in Albany GA. My doc said it is not available in the USA because FDA won’t approve it.
When he handed me the prescription he handed me a list of several foreign pharmacies to choose from and I chose Canadadrugsonline.
Your doc may be reluctant to prescribe it because it’s not FDA approved. I call it my illegal drug!

By the way the domperidone cost me $80 for 200 10mg tablets. I’m supposed to take them 4 times a day but I only take it twice a day — before breakfast and at bedtime.
So that’s a 100 day supply for me.

No bad side effects at all with domperidone. I have to get it from Canada because the FDA has not approved it. And I think it must be helping me. Of course I’m sure the extremely low fiber diet helps too.

@mayorocks I did a lot of research about the monster in my belly. Read an article about success getting rid of them by blasting them with Coca-Cola! Seriously! No docs in my area would do that though.
So without my doc’s blessing, I started drinking a couple of cokes a day on an empty stomach. (Not supposed to drink cokes when you have Barrett’s.) When I had my 2nd RFA 10 months later, the doc said the monster was gone.
Now I’m not going to say that I got rid of it by drinking cokes because I’m sure that the extremely low fiber diet and taking domperidone had a lot to do with it!

Thank you @dotdash I just wondered because I know damage to the vagus nerve can cause Gastroparesis. I’ve just wondered how it’s determined that there was damage. And I guess it’s determined by your symptoms following a surgery — like you had the excessive vomiting.
