💚 Hi I’m Sarah and I’m 35. I live in the UK. I became ill in 2013 and was diagnosed with Gastroparesis in 2015. I have a PEGJ which is used for medication and draining only, as unfortunately I failed on the enteral feed and I am fed by tpn via my broviac line. Unfortunately I’ve been told I’m not a candidate for a pace maker, due to the Gastroparesis effecting my bowel also. As well as GP I also have a number of other chronic illnesses which also makes it hard to deal with. It has and is an emotional battle and I have my ups and downs. In and out of hospital with long admissions. But it has made me stronger and I won’t give up and let this or should I say these illnesses win!

About the author: Gastroparesis: Fighting For Change Admin

We created this website to provide the public with additional information regarding Gastroparesis. It is our goal to connect users with our Facebook advocacy group, “Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change.”

Our Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change Facebook group was formed to unite people with Gastroparesis and other digestive and motility disorders to work for change. It is not a typical GP support group, as we do not discuss personal medical issues. Rather, we established this as a place where members can discuss ideas regarding our mission, vision, goals, needs, services, and resources to work toward solutions. So if you want to make a difference for our GP community, we encourage you to share your ideas! Additionally, we need you to help us fight for changes in legislation! Also, you can help raise funds! Finally, you can help spread awareness! Please join our main group. We would love to have you!

You can find links to our Community Page and our Advocacy Group on our Resources Tab.

In order to accomplish our goals, we will be sharing many ways you can get involved on our Campaigns Tab.
