My son has gastroparesis; the doctor performed surgery to insert a gastric stimulator by Medtronic. Prior to the surgery, he was vomiting aqt almost every meal. Now he is much better and vomits about once or twice a week. He sees doctor @ 6 MOS for f/u. Medtronic says it doesn't always work, but usually helps. If you'd like more information,you can e-mail me or call at 520-303-0609 in afternoons. I think there has been only 3 of these surgeries in Tucson- procedure has been avail since 2002, but only on a compassionate basis. Took us a year and a half to get it approved.
