Gastric Emptying Study...done!


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Just thought I would let you all know I made it through the Gastric Emptying Study...barely..I had a very hard time eating the egg sandwich because I was soo nauseaus...I finally did it...My test was only two hours so I'm hoping it's accurate; I know I have seen posts about the 2 hour not being as accurate as the 4 hour..Anyhow, just thought I'd let you guys know that I got that obstacle out of the way.

So glad you were able to get your GES completed, I hope it will give you some answers and lead to effective treatments!

In regards to the 2 hour study, my GI doc said that if you have an apparent slow emptying time for the 2 hour then you will have delayed emptying on the four hour ( I asked him this question when mine came back...I only emptied 26% after 120 minutes)...he said you just have to be aware that the 2 hour study may not pick up everyone who delyaed if it is not severe.

Good luck, I will be thinking about you!

Did you get final results?

BTW, were you more symptomatic at the time of the test?

I posted elsewhere that I was told my delay gastric emptying study was fine but with the recent delay shown on my endoscopy, they are calling my gastroparesis episodic. My delay gastric emptying study was a 24 hour study. They took pictures at 1, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 24 hours. I am curious if it came back fine because I have made modifications since the original dx.

Hi Guys,

I have not gotten any results back yet. I have a follow up apptmt with my GI doc next Friday so hopefully I get the results then. I was very nauseas that day of the test, I could barely eat that horrible egg sandwich!

Thanks for asking, I'll keep you guys updated,

Jacquie
