Has anyone in this group had the device implanted? If so, what was your experience like? Just found out my drs want me to have this surgery. Thanks!

Hi, I haven't had it done, but dr talked to me about it. The meds for gastroparesis have terrible side effects, some non-reversible so you can't stay on it for more then a couple of months, this is why he mentioned it. I am on the fence about it though.

Please let me know how it goes should you have it done.
