Diet-Related: App 1 in 5 people will develop diarrhea after undergoing gallbladder surgery. This is usually precipitated by fatty-food intake. Most of the time, the diarrhea will resolve within a few weeks (to-months) after surgery. In the rare case that it does not resolve, this can be managed with medication.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually forever: Gastroparesis is a slowing of the motility of the stomach and therefore a slowing of it's emptying. Often idiopathic (no clear cause), but can be part of disease, such as diabetes, systemic sclerosis, or after gastrectomy. Once nerves to stomach are interrupted, may not return. Suggest: eat 4-5 smaller meals daily, eat slowly, relaxed, chew fully, drink water. Certain meds may help. Consult c GI doc.
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). Sorry but cannot give you a definitive answerSee 1 more doctor answer

30 minutes (or more): You need to find out how long it takes your body to start to absorb the medication -- usually that's about 30 minutes, or more, depending on your degree of gastric emptying. If your gastric emptying is 0-15% at 2 hours, consider taking it an hour before; 15-30% - 45 minutes, and 30%+ 30 minutes should work out well. Good luck!

Can't eat any types of meat or lettuce. Diag w/ gastroparesis in 07'. Last empty. Study done standing. Was norm. Is this the rt. Way to do test? Gravity?
Yes: The right way to do the study is to replicate the way you would normally eat. People eat in an upright position. And those with gastroparesis should especially avoid lying down for a couple hours after eating. We aren't interested in seeing what happens if someone lies down immediately after eating. We want to see if the problem exists even when a person is eating correctly. Good luck.
