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.

My Daughter Passed Away From Gastroparesis

Robin H’s Daughter Marni

My daughter, Marni, passed away from GP March 22, 2017. I am forever heartbroken. She was diagnosed with GP 7 years before. She was on TPN 24/7 with home health.

We would go to the ER when the pain was intolerable and they always thought she was looking for drugs. She beat sepsis 5 times… only when she was septic would ER take her seriously.

All doctors and hospitals need more education regarding GP and need to take warriors seriously.
