I have had gastroparesis for 20 years. I went from 160lbs down to 103lbs. In march of this year the put me on PPN to go along with the 3 small meals I was eating daily. About 2 months ago I got to the point where I can't put any food in my stomach. I am stuffed and in pain after 1 bite. Now I can;t eat any solids and can only take small sips of water at a time. I can only drink 6-8 oz water daily. The egg study test result came back Severe Gastroparesis. I was also diagnosed with upj blockage and hydrophonesis in the left kidney and also had a high PSA that showed 1 abnormal sample (precancer). Does anyone know if any of these things can be related. Each of my Doctors only look at their own specialty.
