I am 13 years old and I have just recently been diagnosed with achalasia and my doctor gave me 4 options. Botox, dialation, Heller Myotomy, and a new prosedure called POEM. I am unsure about which procidure I am going to do and I really need advice on which procedure (with reasons please) and on how I can handle the problem because it is becoming difficult to handle and as of right now I am taking Nefidipine and it helps a lot but it is not a permenent solution. I am leaning towards POEM because it is low risk and is simple. Please give me advice!!!
