My son was diagnosed with achalasia last year and had the myotomy in May 2013. Initially, everything was amazing and his symptoms were gone! However, after a few weeks he started to cough at night, become raspy (sounding like Darth Vader again), and eventually vomit the i digested food that sat in his oesophagus. He copes well with his symptoms and I guess at 7, he is used to it, but he is now back to square one after another barium swallow this week. As I am starting to read more and more, I am worrying about complications down the line for him and damage that can further occur. Does anyone have any top tips or advice that can help to relieve his inconvenience? I am sure some foods are more of a trigger than others, such as bread, but it can be quite difficult convincing him to follow a different diet, simply to avoid the build up and then sick!
