Hi my name is Tiffany Kimsey, here is my story of being diagnosed with GP.
It started back in 2014 when my brother in law noticed I was losing weight like crazy. He said something to my sister. We thought it might be to the change that I went through. In September of 2013 I moved in with them. I continued to lose weight. My PCP decided to check me for diabetes by the grace of god that was negative. In January of 2016 I ended up in the emergency with horrible stomach pains. They couldn’t find anything wrong so they sent me home and told me that if it got worse to come back, so by that weekend I was worse. So back to the emergency room I went, they did find out that my colon was infected so I was put on antibiotics. Buy this time I was still loosing weight. My nurse practitioner told me that she wanted me to get tested for Gastroparsis, so I did. In April of 2017 I got the final diagnosis of GP.
This has not been an easy road for me. In the last five months I ended up having my galblabber removed. I am really blessed that I don’t have it bad. I don’t have any pics of me before the diagnosis to now.
