Feb 21, 2018 · Does anyone else have Gastroparesis not caused by diabetes? in Digestive Health

I went to Omaha, NE to get my gastric pacemaker implanted. I live in Kansas and was told of three places closest to me to get one. They were Omaha, St. Louis and Wichita. My insurance did not cover my mileage but the pacemaker has been a God send. I had it implanted in April 2012. My Dr told me not to take Reglan because it can cause Parkinson’s disease. I also got the fundiplication wrap and I wouldn’t advice to get that because I was miserable and he accidentally cut my spleen and it had to be removed. My gastroenterologist recommended these places so maybe find a good Gastroenterologist in your area to help you. Good luck and get better, I did. Kathy

I have idiopathic gastroparesis and am not diabetic. I have had the gastric pacemaker implanted in my stomach since 2012 and it’s going well. My Dr. told me not to take Raglan because it can cause Parkinson’s disease. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. Kathy

Thank you. Yes mine is very severe but if I watch what I eat the pacemaker works great.

I also did the Botox injections in my stomach but they quit working. My only choice was the pacemaker which I had implanted in April of 2012 and it was a God send. It is still working until this day. Just my opinion. Kathy

I wished I had never had the nissen fundiplication done when I had my gastric pacemaker implanted for my idiopathic gastroparesis. I was miserable afterwards plus he accidentally cut my spleen and couldn’t get it to quit bleeding so had to take it out. I wouldn’t recommend the nissen fundiplication to anyone. Kathy

When I first was having problems with my idiopathic gastroparesis they put me on Reglan. My family Dr told me to stop it because it can cause Parkinson’s disease. I’m doing quite well on the pacemaker I’ve had since April 2012.
