Hannah Ritchie and her mum Julie on holiday in Europe. See SWNS story NYSTOMACH; A woman who lives with a debilitating disease which makes her go the loo up to thirty times every day will have a permanent feeding tube fitted to AVOID EATING completely. Hannah Ritchie, 20, was diagnosed with gastroparesis in February, a condition in which the stomachs muscles are partially paralyzed. The condition interferes with normal digestion and causes severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, symptoms which first began to affect Hannah in 2010 when she was 12. At its worst point, the condition caused Hannah, then 16, to vomit six times a day and run to the toilet with chronic diarrhea up to thirty times. Hannah, of Vermilion, Ohio, also lives with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a condition that affects the circulation of blood flow causing a rapid heart rate. Following her gastroparasis diagnosis, Hannah underwent surgery to cut the pylorus, a muscle that allows emptying of the stomach, but it was unsuccessful. In July, Hannahs doctors made the decision to insert a temporary NJ tube which bypasses her stomach and inserts nutrition directly into her small intestine through a tube in her nose. After cutting out eating, Hannahs condition has vastly improved and her trips to the bathroom have reduced to just six times a day.
