Hi there, I've been diagnosed with Achalasia and am due to have a balloon dialation treatment for it soon. Having looked into it myself and spoken to a number of friends and family (some of who are doctors and nurses) I'm in doubt that the dilation is the right choice to take.
I am 28 years old, male, and other than minor/moderate reflux (which I take lansoprazole for) I'm healthy. I believe that the myotomy may be the best treatment to take due to my age as it means a much smaller chance of further treatment if successful. My consultant seemed to be on the fence when deciding which treatment to give me which has put me in doubt as I'd lean towards getting a perminant fix.
