I'm 74 and am scheduled to have POEM surgery in 3 weeks. Don't mind admitting I am afraid. I also have late stage COPD and sleep apnea. My first concern is my pulmonary function while under anesthetic but am also wondering if the outcome will give me enough relief to make it worth the surgery. That is probably up to ones individual case. Have confidence in my Surgeon (Cleveland OH) who trained under the original POEM Surgeon from Japan. Guess what I'd like to know is how much of an improvement did you have after surgery from as many of you as possible. Thank You in advance.
