Re: [IPk] Re Pump



Hi Julie

Yes, I have had Gastroparesis since 1996 if this is what he was talking 
about.  The test I had was an endoscope after fasting over night.  The 
stomach should have been empty but for me, nothing had moved.  I believe 
there are now many other tests used.  I do hope you have not got this.  Do 
you have other symptoms?

June
