Hi all, firstly i wish u all a very merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. I have suffered from GERD now for about 2yrs, have been taking lansoprazol for this and it has helped somewhat. Recently i have been getting the sensation of food getting stuck in my oesphagus and my ent specialist is sending me for an oesphageal dilation op in Jan 2017. Just wondering if anyone else has had this done and is it successful!! Many thanks for all the support on here, good to talk to folks in similar situation!
