I Continued To Lose Weight

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.

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.
