Transnasal Esophagoscopy (TNE)

Those with Gastroparasesis have to experience many Endoscopies in their lifetime which involves having a tube crammed down your throat while under anesthesia.  You might want to ask your doctor about TNE for your next test.

Transnasal Esophagoscopy (TNE) is a technology that allows for examination of the esophagus, the swallowing tube between the throat and stomach, without the patient being put to sleep. Most commonly, this is done to check for cancer and other esophageal disorders. Indeed, the technology has changed. Doctors can now look inside while patients are awake, comfortable, and without pain, using TNE.

A Spritz for your bowl

We wanted to share with our site followers that someone has informed us of a great product that just might help with some of the embarrassment that people with GP can experience when having to visit the bowl.  Those with GP suffer from constant GI problems that are out of their control and you might have to use the bowl in very inconvenient places and times.  For those that are conscious about this there is a great product called Poo-Pourri.  Here is the website for the product.  It is also sold on ebay and amazon.  The Lavender one is the most pleasant one.  Our followers have told us that you really only need to use 1 spritz instead of the recommended 4-5.
