Hi Debbie, One question for you, have they ever tested you for "Gastroparesis"? If I eat something that has fat, fiber, or is rich as in sauces, it slows down my digestion tract. The last time I swelled up huge like 6 months pregnant, thank goodness I only had a hair cut that day. I couldn't even fasten my pants, sooooo, I wrapped a sweater around my waist and went in. Cathy my beautician just said WHAT is going on with you? That is horrible. The test for Gastroparesis consists of eating either tuna or egg salad laced with radioactive seasonings, next you eat peaches in heavy syrup, and lastly drink a full glass of whole milk. You stand up in front a screen periodically, and pics are taken of your abdomen digesting the food as it goes down, then when the results come in, they tell you where your scoring is and whether or not you will need meds for it. Which are Reglan ( metrocloprimide) and Promethazine ( Phenergran ?) for nausea. I also deal with swelling periodically from adhesions, but not nearly as bad as Gastroparesis. Hang in there, and do fill us in on the results from the lidocain infusions. Take care, Cheryl   > Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2009 18:11:04 -0500
