Christopher passed away on 10/1/15 suddenly and unexpectedly (not as a result of GP).
In Memory of Christopher donations can be made to G-Pact (Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures & Treatments).
What is GP?
GP is short for Gastroparesis. GP is a chronic debilitating life-changing, life-long condition for which there is no cure. Gastroparesis literally means that the stomach is paralyzed and food does not get processed correctly – thus resulting in a slew of medical problems.
Christopher had GP as a result of damage to the vagus nerve during two da Vinci surgeries (Fundoplication Wrap and Vagotomy). GP can cause the following conditions: Wasting Syndrome, Nesioblasitosis (low blood sugar with high diabetic levels), Endocrine Deficiencies, Dumping Syndrome, Chronic Esophageal Spasms, Hydrogen Bacterial Stomach Infections, Malnutrition and even death.
Leesa Busch, Christopher’s wife and partner of over 18 years devoted a website aimed at helping others with Gastroparesis. If you want to learn more about GP and how Leesa and Chris lived with this debilitating disease, visit http://ilovesomeonewithgp.com/.
