Hi, after seeing my surgeon and, gastroenterologist yesterday and, saw how distended I was My surgeon MR. Paul Goldsmith said that he was not worried about the Achalasia as such at the moment but, was very concerned about the destention in my abdomen. He explained that it could be my bladder as the sphincter muscle associated with the bladder can also stop relaxing 😱 so I may possibly have 3 sphincter muscles that do not perform, my oesophagus which will never function. But, the sphincter in my large colon dosnt relax and, Now possibly my bladder. A courier arrived this morning with an appointment letter for next Tuesday along with something called Gastrofin that I have to dilute with water and, drink the day before and, on the morning of the CT scan. So I have no idea what is going on with my body. It will take me forever and, a day to get half a pint of water down at any one sitting. So my surgery has been put on the back burner until they find out what is causing the distension. Feeling rather poorly and, very down hearted at the moment. I just don’t know what is happening at all, my voice has completely gone today, but just a croak as I was obviously refluxing a lot in the night. I slept but, my husband did not as he said I was growling all night. So very fed up with myself today and, a little frightened to be honest. When I was admitted three weeks ago with severe chest pains and, very low blood pressure I explained to them that I was finding it difficult to pass water and, they just said it was because everything was squashed due to my abdomen. That was as much advice I was given by A&E as there were no signs of infection. It seems my sphincters are just giving up has anybody else experienced this at all
