I read this community often but this is the first time that I have posted. I was diagnosed two months ago after suffering for the last year with severe bloating and nausea. I started loosing weight about 18 months ago and just almost stopped eating because I became so uncomfortable. I am 5' 1" and weighed 130 pounds. I have lost 17 pounds now and cannot eat hardly anything. I am type II diabetes but have never had an trouble with diabetes, since I watch my diet and I also exercise. My gastro doctor did an MRI and Cat scan which did not show anything, he then did a gastric empting study and that is where he found the problem. My food was still in my stomach after 2 1/2 hours and had not moved. I am now taking Zigarid and Bentyl, which I do not see is helping a lot. I am eating soft food and drinking Ensure, a little at a time. I am still very uncomfortable and nauseaous a lot of the time. The doctor says it is not reversible and will only get worse. I am so frustrated with this, it really messes with your mental state. I am still loosing weight, every two or three days, I am half a pound lighter. I have a lot of pain in my ribs and back. My cardio doctor says everything is fine with my heart. If anyone has any suggestions for me I would appreciate it.
