Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  Yes, the gastric stimulator is a common treatment for gastroparesis that is not helped by meds.  I know quite a bit about the gastric stimulator.  Have you tried dietary changes?  What medications have you tried?  According to the newest research, in typical cases of gastroparesis, botox injections are no better than saline injections (meaning the only effect from botox injections is the placebo effect).
