its taken me a while to pluck up the courage to post on here as i dont have oesophageal cancer , but the condition i have been diagnosed with after years of swallowing problems and what i can only assume are oesophageal spasms , means i can really only swallow a liquid diet now . searches for lusoria return no results for help and as this site kept comeing up i thought i would watch it . lusoria is my right subclavian artery that is compressing my oesophagus . i was born with it but i have been told its only when the atreries start to harden that it can really impact on swallowing . so i think i share the blockage part .like a lot of other people on here it has taken me years to get a diagnosis . diagnosed may this year .
I was so relieved when i was told it wasnt cancer i said well soup and ice cream it is then and that was it .i am however strugeling to get enough pureed food down me as i can have a maximum of two desert spoons of puree before i feel full / blocked .it takes two hours to go down , i can hear it gurgle when it does like a blocked plug hole lol .
i finally spoke to a diatitian and he has prescribed liquid nutrition packs as he sais i cant get enough from such small amounts of food . so when i get them i am hoping my energy levels will improve .
this site is very posative and i wanted to say that my dad had throat cancer thirty three years ago and is still here now age ninty ,eating and enjoying food as is my mother who had colon cancer eleven years ago .
well i will now take the plunge and click send in the hope there may be someone else out there with the same condition .
