Hello!
I also have GP. It's been a bit of a struggle, but I finally have found my way to get through. I eat small meals about 5 times a day. I get pretty bad constipation as well, although I certainly have attacks with D. So, what I have found that works well is benefiber twice a day (since we can't eat high fiber anyway with GP) and in the evenings I take align (probiotic) and 2 colace.
A little over a year ago I was in the hospital for 5 days b/c I couldn't stop vomiting. The stomach pains were terrible--ugh-It was a rough time. At that time, they put me on reglan. I was on it for only one month before I got the TERRIBLE side effects. Not only did my face start to twitch, but I also started producing breast milk. Quite disturbing.... so I am NOT a fan of reglan, so PLEASE be careful!
Ask any questions you might have, as this has been a long and difficult road for me also.
As for diet--I don't do dairy, red meat, or anything high in fat. Any fruit needs to be cooked or broken down (like applesauce) and I only do cooked veggie (but even that took time to work up to)
Hope you feel better soon!
Aly
