Gastroparesis has left a 28 year old mum, Suzanne Kettle, to sustain on just tea and biscuits. This rare health condition causes her stomach to paralyze as it prevents her stomach from contracting to digest food.
It will take her eight hours to process a meal. She has lost weight and has gone from a size 14 to a size 10.
Three years ago, Suzanne kettle began to suffer nausea and stomach pain. Doctors took quite sometime to correctly diagnose her illness.
A special stomach pacemaker is her only hope for a normal life. She needs to undergo a stringent testing process to decide if she is eligible for Ģ25,000 surgery on the NHS.
A temporary pacemaker will be fitted on Suzanne in two weeks. She is desperate to have her quality of life back.
