Re: swallowing difficulties

check to see if you have EE esinophilic esophogitus i have that badly and have to take steroids sprays, it causes narrowing and scar tissue / if they did the dilation correctly it should have helped. some drs dont know how to do it at all. you should not be in pain after having it done other than some soreness, no true pain though. you both may need to find different drs. sorry. i had to leave dr last year and find new one this year. had much better success this year with dilation and sprays etc. Last year that dr didnt find anything wrong and almost killed me, he did 2 dilations and finally tore my throat. so much pain and he did nothing just said i was fine.
