Hi everyone - Yesterday at my clinic appointment check I mentioned to my surgeon that I cough none stop after eating to the point I tetch and I'm sick.
He has advised that I come in Tuesday as his minor surgical procedure so they can perform a gastroscopy and possible balloon dilation at the top of my join.
I was told some time back that should a stricture or scar tissue form around the join it would require a stretch?
They want to get this sorted before my chemo starts and before they decide to remove my feeding tube.
Has anyone had this procedure done especially so close to the top of neck? I'm nervous and apprehensive on what to expect from it?
Many thanks in advance
