Hello i am new to this group. I am hoping to find a way to help my godmother.She is in her seventies. She was well until about 6 months ago she suddenly developed swallowing problems. Now even liquids are an issue. It takes her hours to manage a cup of tea. She has been to see a consultant and had various diagnostics and I think Achalasia has been definitely diagnosed. She is on muscle relaxants but these are not helping. She is waiting to see a consultant again and I think the gp is just lost. No one is addressing the fact that she has lost 2 stone and was lean to start with. She is depressed and I honestly think she will not last the year. At what point will someone intervene? I need advice on getting some calories in to her, if her condition cannot be treated surely she cannot be just left till we have to call an ambulance cause she is starving to death? Please help! Does anyone know who I can speak to?
