It’s not often that we see stories about gastroparesis in the news, so I wanted to share this fantastic clip from KABC-TV in Los Angeles. It features GPer Kandra Burleson and her experience with the gastric pacemaker.
The story cites statistics showing that the gastric neurostimulator decreases nausea and vomiting up to 80% and reduces hospital visits by 70%. Like most others I’ve heard about, it appears to be working well for Kandra. Five months post-surgery she’s gained 15 pounds and says she’s doing better every day. The clip even shows her eating salad. Congrats, Kandra!
