Depends: I would assume that depends on the cause of gastroparesis. If this is acute and self limited due to a viral illness then that should resolve in days to weeks. If it is related to a chronic condition then that may depend on how well controlled the chronic condition may be (i.e. diabetes).

I got botox to treat my gastroparesis my doc said my pylorus did not look abnormal like it dose with gastroparesis patients what does that mean?
Is it safe for a patient to receive a TPN feed through a GJ Tube?My sis has severe Mastocytosis & Gastroparesis, and enteral feeding tube didn't work.
Not a question of : safety, rather why give a parenteral feeding, enterally, might not be absorbed efficiently and an expensive preparation would be wasted. The G-J tube is meant to bypass the stomach and go right into the small intestine, there are preparations meant to be used this way that don't need stomach digestive process, ask the doctors/dietician about, wish you and your sister wellness ...Read more

I have idiopathic gastroparesis is it ok to stick to my 5 safe foods and pediasure or should I try to get more variety in my diet?
Gastroparesis Rx: Since fatty foods normally slow gastric emptying, we typically recommend a low fat diet with gastroparesis (slow emptying). Sweet, rich foods will also slow stomach emptying. Signs of delayed gastric emptying include early fullness, altered appetite, nausea and sometimes heartburn/vomiting. There are also medications available for the treatment of gastroparesis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was on a liquid diet for 2 months never lost a pound. I was put on it because of gastroparesis, on linzess now i can have a bm why?
Maybe constipation: It is possible that your "gastroparesis" or delayed gastric emptying was part of your underlying irritable bowel/constipation syndrome in which your bowels are sluggish. Linzess is a new drug to treat this. Seems to really help about 1/2 of patients with this problem. Glad it helped you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
