I'm practically nothing but skin and bone at this point. I can't keep anything down. I'm so scared. Does anyone have a meal replacement other than glucerna or protein shakes?

      @KaraZorEl thank you so much. I haven't been on here in awhile and reading this really gave me the little bit of light I needed.

      I know your post is old, but I was exactly where you are. I was 90 pounds and could barely look myself in the mirror. I was decaying in front of everyone and no one seemed to believe me when I said I felt like I was dying. I started taking a probiotic every day and I was FINALLY able to keep something down. I was FINALLY not throwing up every single day all day. There are ones for $15 on Amazon. I don't know how you are doing now, as your post is two months old, but I really hope you are doing better. The doctors have done all they can for me, but the probitoic absolutely saved my life. I really hope it can help you too. ❤️

      You're going to probably stay on the full liquid diet side of things. Maybe try unsweetened applesauce, baby food, would be the thickest I'd go. And avoid insoluble fiber. Have doctors thought about electroacupuncture or even a "pacemaker" implant? I don't know what it is called but that is the gist of it?

        @JaimeJ I was told not to try for the pace maker, the results weren't good

      I found that baby food pouches were really easy on my stomach. Definitely check all the ingredients, but they taste good and are easy to keep down for me

        @Jangel tried baby food pouch tonight, thank you for that recommendation. I was embarrassed to try it but it's working so far

      I just got diagnosed with gastroparesis. I’m all skin and bones now also I’m terrified. I just started a meal replacement called “liquid hope” yesterday. So far so good. It’s all natural USDA organic real food. You can look it up and buy it it is expensive or you can ask your doctor to get it for you. All insurance approves it. Also look into “Kate farms” meal replacement. That one has flavors like vanilla! The other one taste like a soup!
