Most ERs We Have Been To Do Not Even Know What GP Is

First off, seems like most ERs we have been to do not even know what GP is.

2nd off, seems like if you are vomiting worse than usual, lethargic, or can’t even hold down water and you know it’s not your GP acting up, the ER will automatically brush every symptom as ITS JUST GP and not do anything. 

 

Seems like every ER is afraid to touch a child that has GP. Seems like many do not even know what safe meds are and aren’t for GP. (My son was given meds for a virus the other day meanwhile his GI said it was one of the worst meds they can give GP person)

I was told by a doctor that i must have been doing drugs when I was pregnant because that is the only reason my son must have GP and rely on a feeding tube to survive.

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.
