Reflux reduced but acid still creeping plus last 9mths difficulty swallowin. Went doctors aug16 (still no meds taken; bloods, blood press., cholest.. all good. Referred to hospital 260816 and considered emergncy so kept in for tests Advised my oesoph like a funnel .. narrow at bottom, stretched at top. Failed 2 endoscopies as food lodged in funnel. Had ct and barium meal. They suspect dysphagia/alchalasia "due to stricture of unknown". Obviously this is inconclusive and worries me big time but, for what its worth, im showing no visible signs of C and feel great. Got discharged 270816 from Hosp, they wouldnt do 3rd endoscopy, next procedure is on list for PET scan and take 1 20mm omeprazole each day. My acid does seemed to have reduced, still probs swallowing but im not happy taking ppis (want off them asap .. but got to give medical system a chance).
Im a bit up in the air at the moment. I gave nhs a try; got took in as emerg and got tests done. Then day before august bank holiday i get discharged on ppis , on a waiting list for PET scan, no further endoscopies planned yet ive got "a stricture of unknown origin" - scary and at no time has anyone mentioned treating my hiatus hernia which is the source of the reflux problem. In hindsight i should have engaged with medical system a lot sooner and any advice anyone could offer would be appreciated.
