I have a small Hiatus Hernia and Barrett's Oesophagus diagnosed four years ago. I have been feeling sick for nearly 12
months. I have loads of phlegm in my mouth all the time. Especially after eating. And I feel sick and regurgitate food. I can have soup and ice cream without being sick but not much else. I have lost over two stone in weight since December.
I have had lots of tests. Apparently I have a valve which isn't opening or shutting properly Between
the Hiatus Hernia and the Oesophagus but I can't have an operation to repair the Hernia because I have a bad heart condition. Recently I had a Barium Swallow and I have no blockage or narrowing in the throat but the Consultant said the mussels in my
throat weren't working properly. I am getting very depressed. I have been referred to the Swallowing Dept at Wythenshawe
Hospital but don't know how long i'll have to wait.
I had an endoscopy earlier in the year and was told my Barrett's wasn't Cancerous. Can anyone help. The Consultants don't seem
to have an answer.
