I have had the Hellers op for achalsia on 2 Jan 2008
I had the condition for 18 months, worsening every month
Today it is 13th Jan and I am starting to eat sloppy foods with ease and drink easily. Main prob is stomach has shrunk over the time and will not let me have the meal I want
This I can get used to
I had shingles two years ago also, but many have this, and A. only occurs in about 1 in 100-200,000 people. It is still not proven, and there is not a lot you can do about it anyway. I suppose it's nice to blame something...
A very miserable, inconvenient and debilitating condition, tho not life-threatening as such (except the desire to finish it sometimes)
It is early days yet, but if anyone wants to chat about the condition (many GP, and specialists are in the dark), or about the op please do
I have had two dilations and two botoxes before I finally had the op. It took three hours, and he did not puncture the mucosa
