Dysphagia (trouble swallowing) so what now?

I've had a problem with meat for a while so went veggie but just fancied a chicken kiev recently. What a mistake. The paramedics were called out to me by the out of hours doctor. I've just had a endoscopy. Don't ever be conned that they are painless, it was totally awful, opt for sedation. They said I had dysphagia, probably due to scleroderma. So what now?
