Dr. Koch called today and wanted to discuss my Gastric Emptying Scan results. I however missed the call!! I have been carrying my cell everywhere and I usually do not do that. He did however say that he would call back.
This is what he said...
2008 GES 4Hour = 74% (my stomach emptied at this percentage in a 4hr period)
2010 GES 4Hour = 83% (my stomach now empties at this percentage in a 4hr period)
2008 GES 2Hour = 37% (how much my stomach emptied in a 2hr period)
2010 GES 2Hour = 20% (my stomach now empties at this percentage in a 2hr period)
I had assumed after speaking with the GI office that I was at thirty-seven percent. Oh well. This still confuses me because my percentages have gotten better in the four hour digesting period but they have decreased by seventeen percent in the two hour digesting period.
He said that my options are still medications and diet. He did however mention discussing a Gastric Pacemaker. We'll see what happens!
