Default Sick all of the time and itís really killing my mood

A year and a half ago, I had surgery to fix my severe GERD. Well...since then, my entire GI system has pretty much shut down. I have severe non diabetic gastroparesis, meaning that my stomach just doesnít really work anymore, it takes it a long time to empty food. My colon has followed suit on that one...I can never go...I go multiple days at a time, sometimes over a week, and itís painful. And then the worst...the nausea...oh god, the nausea. Chronic nausea. Every day. Itís miserable. I end up curled up in a ball just hoping my medication will kick in so that I can feel okay again. Itís unbearable. This is all really taking a toll on my mental health. Iíve dealt with chronic pain my whole life, Iíve had Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was 6 years old. But Iíd take chronic pain any day over this nausea. Itís so miserable. I donít know how to deal anymore.

Im so sorry to hear that. I am like super protective of my digestive health. I was gonna say, head to tail - but i dont brush my teeth as often as i should (tho i do floss). This might show me. Again, so sorry. And my stomach is certainly tied to my psychological health. If i get anxious, everything tightens up and stops.

So i know there are anti nausea meds, like promethia-something, but its a controlled substance. But dang so good. Do you have to take those new poop meds? Does exercise help? If you dont want to talk about it, thats okay too.

Did you have a nissen proocedure for GERD? I'm so sorry things are so slowed down. Have you been back to your surgeon about it? Surely there's something that can be done.
