I have been offered a Hellers myotomy with fundoplication and I'm terrified. I don't know it if is the best option, it's certainly the most extreme. I suffer no pain from my achalasia. I simply can't swallow food well. It all sits at the bottom of my eosophagus and falls out of my mouth if I lean forward after a meal. Drinking water helps, but most liquids don't pass through my tight sphincter. It's in the early stages right now, the doctor says I am still young and this will progressively get worse.
Has anyone had both the hellers and fundoplication? Did it work long term? Am I better off living with my condition?
