Hello all - my partner Nielsen has his Ivor Lewis done December 2011 and on the whole has done well. He has however had problems with stomach pain and vomiting not really connected to what he eats but just that he has eaten - he had a swallow test done in January which showed a tight narrowing and he went in and had a dilation done which was succesful for two weeks and then back to the same old problems, he had another swallow done about a month ago which showed it had tightened up again and he went in and had another dilation which was succesful - for forty eight hours ! Had another swallow done this week which again revealed it (not quite sure what "it" is!) has started to tighten up again. I had assumed they would put a stent in this time as clearly the dilations are not working but no - the plan is to do an endoscopic pyloric botox injection - this is a new one on me and I wondered if any of you know anything about it and how effective it might be ?
