I’m worried I’ll have a tube. I have no clue when one needs one with gastroparesis because I don’t know how bad my symptoms are compared to others. My doctor does not help me at all with figuring out what I should or should not eat or anything to help symptoms. HELP IM IN THE DARK

      i'm sorry you're going through this, i was stuck wondering if being tubed is my only option - if at all :( what has helped me so far is i've switched over to a low residue diet, i try to eat a couple very small meals a day - rather than three regular sized portions, and doctors have been trying different medications. i'm hoping you can find some more guidence within this <3

        @erethreals do you know where and how to get a dietitian or nutritionist that specializes in Gastroparesis or something like that?

          @Blueberryyu i would search up for any Neurogastroenterologists or Motility Specialists near your area- i've found that they have better treated my gastroparesis more so than my three previous gastroenterologists have :)
