So, I had my appointment with my G.I. doctor on Wednesday, and he wants to place a feeding tube. I can’t try any of the motility meds for gastroparesis for various reasons. Dietary modification is not working. He made a referral to interventional radiology who said they would not place it right now because of the coronavirus. The i’m just at a complete loss as to what I am supposed to do because I am in a course right now and I’m having trouble concentrating on my work. Does anyone have any advice? Feeling alone lost and frustrated!stay at home order for Illinois is extended through May 30, and my labs are crap, and I’m 5 feet four and 88 pounds. I need a way to get nutrition! I have severe gastroparesis, and at four hours, I had 82% food retained. I can’t tolerate the nutritional shakes, and can do liquids at best, but not even very much of those. I also have POTS and EDS. I saw my geneticist yesterday for the first time, and she wants me to get the feeding tube as well. Also my autonomic specialist does too.
