i was diagnosed back in 1996 or 97, at the same time my diabetes 2 was diagnosed. it seems sometimes i have great control over it and other times, it's acting up for months on end. does anyone else here suffer from this condition and how bad is it? mine seems to be getting worse and worse. it started getting out of control several years ago when i had a doc. who had a 'let's wait and see' approach to treating my diabetes. it was out of control for two years before i started looking for a doc who would take it seriously. since then, my gastroparesis has gotten far more severe. recently, i went to a mayo clinic site and have learned some terrible side effects that may happen with gastro. i see a gastroenterologist and even he never mentioned how devestating it could be. now, a condition that i once thought of as an embarrassing nusiance has me terrified. i was wondering how others deal with it and if anyone has had to go so far as having surgery.
