Hi All. Just a bit of background on my history. I was diagnosed with Achalasia in 2007 and had a Hellers myotomy with partial fundoplication performed at the Cleveland Clinic that same year. Well, here I am back with full blown symptoms. Chest spasms and difficulty swallowing, you all know the drill. So, I went and had a whole round of tests done back at the CC and the thoraci surgeon told me about POEM. But the weird thing is, and it has me freaked out a bit, today in the mail I received an appointment for an Echocardiagram. Nobody phoned me from the clinic they just made the appt. does anyone know if this is just normal procedure before a POEM(which I have not even scheduled yet btw). I appreciate you taking the time to read this. All the best! Corri
