Please please someone give me insight on this. It has been very agonising to watch my dad suffer like this. He had a triple by pass last year from a heart attack. But prior to that he had issues keeping food down for about 10 years. Now it has gotten so bad that he can barely even drink liquids without going through about 30 minutes of spitting up clear phlem, spitty bubbly like spit phlem. We dont know what it is he says he isnt in pain when it happens but a lot of discomfort. It happens with nearly any meal and even drinking water !!! He is becoming weak, drained , depressed, frustrated everything and so am I watching this ! He has done two procedures with a balloon to stretch his esophagus and taking heavy anti acids. BUT still he is having troubles and spitting loads of this clear spit stuff up every time he goes to eat or drink. Doctors seem to not be taking thus very seriously + seem to be brushing the poor guy off when he says the anti acids aren't helping etc. No barium test, no sampling of the spit in a lab. nothing and the guy is losing much weight for like a year and a half now plus the troubles of trying to recover from heart surgery i think this should be taken more seriously !! Someone please help. Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated, sorry for the long post i just wanted to make sure i covered everything.
Thx, one love.
