My nan suffers from achalasia, she has had this condition for over 2 years and has had numerous operations but nothing has helped. She is now fed through a tube into her stomach as she had dramatic weight loss from not being able to eat. She even regurgitates drink and only manages to drink tiny amounts. She can only eat food that melts in her mouth like the crisps quavers even though she still regurgiates this aswell. I am trying to find new foods for her to eat and was wondering what you find it easiest to eat to try and give her a change. The acalasia also caused her to have aspiration pneumonia due to her coughing all the time. Her Coughing is really bad and she coughs all the time even when she is not eating or drinking.
Also i have been researching the condition and have found a treatment called botulinum toxin injection, Has anyone had this treatment before and does it work?
Really appreciate any advice, Thank you x
