Hi, after several years of worsening Symptoms,including aspiration which has damaged my lungs, I have now been recommended for this op. I have oesophageal dysmotility and virtually no stomach sphincter tone. I also have a large hiatus hernia. My gastro consultant is really pushing for it. However, the surgeon ( mr Dip Mukherjee at Queens) says that although he has performed this op three times a week for fifteen years, he has never done it on a scleroderma patient! I am after advice. Has anyone had this op? Which hospital and surgeon performed it? And should I asked to be referred to someone else? This surgeon seems very professional and is a lovely guy, but I must admit I do have reservations! Thanks.x
